Me, amazed by a tree in Old Pasadena — by John Livzey

I’m a musician/composer, mom of three wild, wonderful grown sons, “Nana” to the prettiest baby girl in New York, a private teacher and coach, inspiring MUSE School CA‘s music director, and a community board member for inspiring Our Community School. My avocations include writing, food, adult development, sustainability, and the deliciously contradictory realms of the existential and the mystical.

My primary mentor in my core practice of thinking about living is my artist/musician/fitness-guru father. Trained as a music educator and in holistic health, with a lifelong interest in Jungian psychology, I imagine my elder self as a white-haired hipster coaching youngers on our amazing 21st century journey.

The lens through which I live contains two other core elements, both my creative mother’s mark on me: hunger for beauty in all its forms, and intense drive with which to pursue my passions. Welcome to my blog, one meandering process through which I do so!
