Be-In Gathering at Jeanne's May 9, 2017

Be-In Gathering at Jeanne's

Location: Beverly Hills, Lahug, Cebu City, Cebu (province), Philippines

Be In
Stoked from the recent Ashtanga gathering at Jeanne's place, another "be in" event was staged, this time, instead of yoga, it was all about music, wine and friendship...with the usual suspects.

Wine
With just a few of us and 5 bottles to down with, things got loosened-up to let our hair down. Spontaneity with abandon became the name of the game. Surprising revelations were displayed, secrets were unveiled and I'll keep my mouth shut :)

Flute, Guitar and Organ Keyboard
Yes, not just a guitar, but also a flute and an organ. Jan competently winged classic songs she knew nothing about and Jeanne mesmerized everyone with her velvety voice which reminded me, "oh...where is Sade nowadays?" The evening was music-filled with tunes from the golden years to current Top 40.

Ending Thoughts
In a karaoke-Zeitgeist where volumes are set at ear-shattering levels, it was pure bliss to come back to the old-fashioned days when someone just took a guitar out and sang familiar tunes as everyone circled their way around. But at Jeanne's, it didn't stop at that - the organ and the flute made up the symphony. With wine to wash things down, everybody got loose enough to forget they were yoga teachers. It was a memorable evening of music, wine and lots of love. Thank you Jeanne!
