Each month I cull through HUNDREDS of events in Houston and curate the best for you by highlighting six inspiring events (“PICKS”) and one “SPIRIT SPOTLIGHT” (an inspiring person or bricks-and-mortar place) as well as products, classes and workshops, and services. I focus on culture and art, meditation, spiritual events, healthy living, one-of-a kind moments, and organizations that enlighten and inspire Houstonians. I’m so amazed by this city and I want to share my delight with you! SPIRIT PICKS will always be free to my readers so I’ll need advertising support to offset the cost of researching, writing, and designing it. If you are interested in advertising, please contact me. And so that we can spread the news of these great happenings in Houston, please share this information far and wide via email and social media with your friends and family members that might be interested -- or send them this link: www.spiritpicks.com.
Ah May…how busy are ye! Tomorrow (Tuesday, May 3) is the first ever “Big Give Houston,” a day focused on giving to our city’s many amazing nonprofits. “Cinco de Mayo” is on Thursday; Sunday, May 8 is Mother’s Day; Sunday, May 21 is not only “Armed Forces Day” but also “World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development”; and Memorial Day – the day we remember those who died while serving in our country's armed forces – is Monday, May 30. It’s also Bike Month, Historic Preservation Month, and Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and several other observances are happening this month, as you can see in this huge list. Whew, it’s staggering really!
Gratitude is a habit that can change the world and our own lives. Musicians Nimo Patel and Daniel Nahmod were inspired by the 21-Day Gratitude Challenge to create this beautiful video and song that brought together dozens of people from around the world. Enjoy “GRATEFUL: A Love Song to the World.” May it inspire you to spread gratitude!
