Holy Smokes!  My pal David McMullin announced that he started a website for his writing and illustration for Children’s Books.  I’ve always known David as a performer, but check this out:
http://www.davidmcmullinbooks.com/

He’s doing cut paper illustration and it is absolutely gorgeous.

Here’s a link to his page of pictures:

I left this comment with Terri’s obituary:

Terri Allen was a wonderful friend. She was incredibly talented, infusing her performances with that kind of late afternoon sunshine and soulful depth. She was authentic and honest. Terri was the real deal and an example of the kind of human being this world could use  more. As a friend, Terri was supportive and present. Those of us who knew and loved her will forever be warmed by her presence in our lives.

Terri Allen’s Videos for the 2010 United States Census

*
2010 United States Census, A New Portrait of America video:
Terri Allen worked with a team to produce this video.  The voice over artist is Terri and she wrote the lyrics of the beautiful song at the end (music by Todd Hahn):

*
This one, too: Another 2010 United States Census, A New Portrait of America video:

*
Addendum 8/25/2014
Maris, a wise mutual friend of Terri’s and mine, said of these videos, 
“The census videos are so beautiful…and it is a delight to hear Terri’s narrating voice. As always, she believes every word…”
It goes to how authentic Terri was.  Terri was the real deal.  She was never fake or untrue or dishonest.  She was 100% authentic.

DC Cabaret Network

Terri and I served together for many years on the board of the DC Cabaret Network.  She became its Executive Director.  She loved the DC Cabaret Network and worked very hard (and succeeded) to create a warm and inviting atmosphere to share and grow in song:

Lovely tribute from DC Cabaret Network to inform its members about Terri’s passing:

In Memory of Terri Allen

The DC Cabaret Network is heartbroken to share the news that Executive Director Terri Allen died unexpectedly on August 21.

Terri’s presence in Washington’s cabaret scene was unique and immeasurable. Her artistry, passion, and dedication encouraged countless singers to step up to a microphone and bare their souls through music. Her love for music and singers had no bounds.

We are working with Terri’s family to organize a memorial service, which will be announced in a second email. The September 15 Open Mic at the Warehouse Theatre will be in her memory.

Terri will be missed greatly as an artist, leader, and friend.

I have another little memory to add.  Byron Muray is a friend and singer with the DC Cabaret Network.  He also writes beautiful prose and poetry and often shares his work or reads the work of others before he sings.  It’s always a lovely, thoughtful and fully perfect compliment to the music.  Before Byraon sang “Lazy Afternoon,” he offered this lovely prose, reading his work:

As I was walking down Massachusetts Avenue recently in the late afternoon, I saw a deer—a beautiful doe—standing less than 20 fee away at the edge of the trees that descend down to the valley below. It was feasting on the vegetation at its hooves.
As I looked, I noticed that from time to time, it would look up at me fearlessly. As I gazed back at this magnificent wild creature, I felt an extraordinary presence—a quiet communication. Then I thought of you, wandering somewhere new in the ether and wondered if you felt it, too.

Byron Murray, Monday, September 15, 2014, Warehouse Theatre, Washington, DC at Terri Allen’s DC Cabaret Network Memorial Open Mic

I wrote and asked Byron how he came to write this lovely story.  He wrote to me:

Later on the day I learned about Terri I took a walk down Mass Ave about 4 pm.  Just across from the British Embassy I saw a deer standing there.  I stopped to take a look and thought it would dart off but it just stood there with an almost  defiant stance.  It seemed odd to see a deer at that time of day and especially one that was just hanging around.  Everything seemed otherworldly and silent–sort of out of our time zone. The thought of Terri came in to my head and I felt I was part of something not of this sphere.  I stood there for nearly 10 minutes.  Finally I walked away and a few times I looked back and the deer was still there and really would look up at me occasionally.  I finally got so far away that I could no longer see it but I didn’t actually see it go back into the wooded area.  I’m not sure what this was all about but I know that I will never forget those 10 minutes.  When I got home I put down the thoughts that I shared on Monday.

Many thanks to Byron for his lovely and thoughtful tribute.

Here’s something undeniably true from artist Fred Babb:

“Art and music are the drugs of choice for millions of kids.  If we expect them to just say no to a chemical high, we must recognized the healing alternative; their own creativity.  Demand and support the real anti-drug program – ARTS IN EDUCATION.”
