Keith “Rainer” Burrows

Keith Lyon Burrows, born January 10, 1937 in Prescot, UK, honed his artistic talents at the Liverpool College of Art before joining the American Greetings Hi-Brow Studio in Cleveland, 1968, where he met his future wife Helaine. In 1975 they moved to Bellevue with their two children to begin a graphics and printing business buoyed by their background and skills.

Rainer was an exceptionally loving and devoted father and avid kids’ soccer coach. He served his God faithfully, lending help in many roles in the Subud organization.

March 12, 2018 he gently passed on, supported by his wife of 49 years; his son Lewis (Carol), daughter Alyssa; brother Philip (Sandra); grandson Brad and a beloved extended family.

The Fab 4 at the Conway Muse


What a night!    A call for “More, more” came from the packed house. And at the end of the evening a standing ovation!   The audience loved it. I was thrilled to be witness to the magic.

Luther Schutz with his unique style of sophistication and soulful singing, the swinging piano improvisations of Elisha Gullixson, with Drew Baddeley playing a fascinating virtuoso double bass, and a very smooth John Anderson on tenor saxophone, mesmerized a packed house. All at the Conway Muse, the noted entertainment spot in Skagit County, Washington.

We all listened intently to a wide range of tunes with major emphasis on the much beloved jazz standards. Gee, they were good. A special treat was the trio’s treatment of “Secret Love”, Doris Day’s old sock. The  audience went wild.  Luther said, “And we didn’t even practice [this one].”

Such a delight to witness four people enjoying themselves to the hilt and at the same time giving their all to the music.  Nice. The cohesion was like listening to a freshly oiled gate. Smooth. Very smooth.

Earth Day! Garden Day!

Join us after Latihan on Sunday, April 22, 2018, for a day of gardening. Marston Gregory, Jim O’Halloran and Leandra will lead the troops in a celebration of Earth Day to clean up around the Subud House, perhaps plant a new hydrangea (thank you Lucinda O’Halloran) and replace the dogwood tree that did not make it.

Garden tools will be provided. Please come help make our house outside look new for Spring!
