Her love for music and unity inspired her to volunteer her time, creativity and organizational skills to produce a few public events here and there in New Jersey and Arizona. Her love for nature, wildlife, the desert, mountains, music, traveling and photography moved her around, quite often. She traveled to Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Ivory Coast, Israel, Costa Rica and hitchhiked around the US. When living in Costa Rica, she heard a strong voice asking her to move back to Tucson which is surrounded by mystical mountains. In April 2020, when the C-19 pandemic enveloped the earth, she decided to let go of her full-time job to fully retire and pursue her passion of creating better festivals for everyone to enjoy.
"Operating from my heart center, I always make my own decisions based strictly on what I really want to create with peace, love, passion, purpose, excitement and joy for all humanity. When we only draw from our higher self, source, then we begin to create our authentic selves not worrying if that pleases others or not. If something doesn't not resonate with me, then I do not follow nor submit to the dark forces that control us even if that means upsetting someone and losing it all.
It ALL started when the NJ pharmaceutical company that I worked for laid off 1,000 employees on Nov. 18, 2001. At that time, I was working in the visual arts-photo department of the company and ended up being one of the first ones to be given a pink slip... The corporation was asked to lower its expenses in order to purchase another big company. That's when I realized that the corporate world does not value people but is on a mission for more assets and more profit. Being a single mom with three young children at home, it was difficult for me but at the same time I felt blessed to let go of the corporate world that no longer served my own purpose. I was just another slave. Now that I was free, I was able to become the Creator of my own destiny regardless of revenues coming in or not. The Divine always provided for me.
I combine my entrepreneurial and organizational skills, and great passion for music to open a French Coffee shop/Crêperie. It was a lot of fun to become my own boss and be able to promote great musicians. I loved supporting their hard-work in my own ways but quickly, I noticed that the fast food businesses around the corner became my greatest challenge because I wasn't selling any alcohol to raise my revenues. I was paying my employees and never paid myself which leads to burnout. Paying everyone is essential. I ended up selling the business and my condo moving back to France. After spending three years there and working as a Bilingual Rep. and as a freelance Wedding Photographer, in Lyon, I heard that little voice inside of me asking me to return to the States and move to Tucson, Arizona which I did. This was in 2008. Today, I live along the border of Arizona/Mexico until next .I will never give up on my dreams...because you never know what the Divine plans for you. - Annick Elzière
2009 - INTERVIEW with Annick Elzière by Kimberly Renée Syphrett
(Kim's beautiful soul moved into the spiritual realm on July 6, 2020 in Plainville, CT where she lived after leaving Arizona. She was only 49 years old, born on November 7, 1970. Her passion was justice. I'll never forget when she asked me if I would be her friend forever regardless what happens in our lives. She was pure love, full of grace and wisdom. Kim touched so many of us.... I have no doubt that we will all meet her again! Annick)

Enjoying the Johnson Mountain Boys, a great bluegrass band throughout the 1980s. Dudley Connell joined the group in 1975 and played the banjo, the guitar and the mandolin.
In 1987, the Johnson Mountain Boys split up and Dudely Connell became the guitarist and leader singer of the Seldom Scene band.
