The home of Crystalline Phoenix and the place where I purchase the good stuff (since 2011). Always awesome to return here.
Jay's in Snowflake AZ ~ Feb 12-25
Jay Schwed pulled up to the Angel Room in 2008 and opened the back of his old Toyota pickup truck explaining that he and his singing bowls had not been "home" for 10 years! With jaw dropped I stood imagining what it would be like to be on the road, wild & free.
