Jody Kessler

I went to my first house concert last Saturday evening, and what a treat. Jody Kessler has been someone I’ve admired for quite a while, and I was thrilled to be able to not only hear her weave her magic through song, but to meet her in such an intimate setting.

Jody is like the four elements. She is definite earth energy. When you look at her there’s a sense of strong foundation. Her spirituality and love for humanity reaches out in her smooth and powerful voice, and you feel the presence of solid ground under your feet.

She is fire. Her passion for life, for truth and justice burns brightly. Her lyrics bring to our awareness through irony, a tad bit of sarcasm and no small amount of tenderness what we may not always want to see or consider.

Emotions flow like water as her fingers skip over strings of guitar, plucking and strumming away at your own heart.

And then there’s the wide expanse of sky, the places she can take you and your spirit soars with her or hovers gently with new perspectives each song offers you.

The next day, I went to a church service, and had the pleasure of hearing Rev. Jody Kessler, sing and talk and pray the wonderful teaching of interconnectedness of Thich Nhat Hanh.

People who follow their dreams, who live their dreams are an inspiration.

Jody is an inspiration to me.
