Live from Sicily! On my walk this morning I ventured out to the Capo Zafferano lighthouse. I was so pleased to see that a restoration is underway! There are rumors that a restaurant may be in the works. Meanwhile, I present to you an image I had hanging in my New York City apartment for…

The Sea At Zafferano
“The sea at Zafferano flashes cross my mind… I come from a braver kind… I feel so alive, I feel so sure, with the sun on my path and the wind at my back…” Capo Zafferano, pictured, and my grandparents’ immigration from this area, inspired my song and performance, “Jump,” released ten years ago this…
