Thom Ricks has spent his life following his passions for art and living by traveling the world, teaching, building, spiritually explorating, while inspiring and encouraging others. He has been a professional artist for 48 years. Thom lives, paints, creates and ponders in his studio, with partner Jodi and their dogs in the countryside near San Marcos. Special music from Dana Cooper, award-winning, Nashville-based singer/songwriter whose songs have been covered by numerous recording artists. A soulful singer and excellent guitarist, Dana was part of the legendary Shake Russell/Dana Cooper Band, among the pioneers of Americana music in the 1970's. He continues to be one of the leading writers and performers in the field, touring internationally -- and we're excited to have him sing in the Circle. Weaving it all together are Linda Cuellar and Angel Santiago with a meditation and poem from Zet Baer. And, as always our Circle Band.
