There are some fans who are just special. You bought my CDs early on. You continue to give them as gifts. You review my new
CDs in newsletters & blogs. You send emails of congratulations
& encouragement. Naturally, I'm looking for new ways
to take your money.
No, no, no!!! That's not what I meant! "To create new products for your shrewd investment" ... THAT'S what I meant!

|In the fall I began teaching songwriting at Montecito
Union School in Santa Barbara, CA. There was a state-wide earthquake drill,

at our house, we're making origami. Our son, Alec, is a
