Into the Wild BLUROOM Yonder, I Go...Watch Out...No Stopping Me Now....SMILE/WAVE...See Ya

Michael Patrick Coucoules and me, by M.P. Coucoules
O.K. folks, I'm starting on a brand new journey/adventure, and am really excited....yeah!...Into that wild Blue....that's the wild BLUROOM I go....Marching straight ahead, one excited step at a time....kinda.
I'm beginning a 14 day group of treatments, one each day...first started last Monday, August 22nd, of Bluroom sessions in Yelm. To see and understand BLUROOM, go HERE.
I'm posting a recent photo of me [ of course Jan]...and, singer/song writer MICHAEL PATRICK COUCOULES/guitar/bass/vocals...that was taken at last Monday night at THE BARTLETT ON BASS Jazz Jam @ UNCLE SAM's BAR AND GRILL in Spanaway, WA.....16003 Pacific Ave. to be exact. AND, I'm looking good, of course. So, that's why I'm posting it. Thanks're looking good too. I'll post more of your photos below from last week's jazz jam.
Anyway, I'm telling everybody about these treatments because,..well, 'cause I will be busy and may want , you know ,some quiet spiritual meditative time to myself during the next couple of weeks [it hasn't kicked in yet....still love to talk and write, but who knows, anything can happen] and I won't be online like usual. don't worry. Just taking care of myself, Jan
