1- BIG MUSIC NEWZ
THE NY METS are playing "Play Ball" at their shiny new stadium, Citi Park!
I just found out that the first times they played it was at the "Subway Series" (Mets vs Yankees)
The producer said "It's really a Great Song! It's so catchy people were rockin' out to it!" Woohooo. In my dreams it's heard & picked up for a baseball movie.
To listen for FREE- Here's the link to the video of the song
2- THE NEW CD… "RIDE THE SKY" !!!
!SPECIAL DISCOUNT THIS WEEKEND!
Since the CD's been making folks happy, I'm celebrating by dropping the price to $12.97 this weekend.(& 10% more off if you buy more than 1 of my cd's!)
FYI- When folks purchase an indie artist's music, that makes it sooner that we may afford to release another...I'd like to do another recording next year. (I REALLY WISH I WERE INDEPENDENTLY WEALTHY & COULD JUST GIVE THEM AWAY. Maybe someday;)
"Ride The Sky" has been getting play around the US & abroad & I'm honored & proud to say it's been in XM The Village top spins several times.

I LOVE THIS FESTIVAL
Particulars of my performance at Wildflower Stage yet TBA
I may be in Northern CA in early Oct,
so if any of Y'All would like to host me in a house concert, please email me: email@example.com
Songwriter Anne Feeney whom many of us know & love is keeping her spirits high marching on in her battle with lung cancer. Since she's been out of work for months, here's where you may donate or attend a concert to help. Her entire life as a lawyer & songwriter has been helping others.
Since so many are still out of work, please continue to support your local food banks & homeless shelters.
It's sure needed!
In my dreams the mega rich, many of whom are holding so tightly to their billions... building empires of shallow shineys... will see the light & realize they have more than plenty. (In the US, they are NOT paying their fair share & many are NOT providing jobs for Americans.) May we focus more on changing legislation so that THEY contribute fairly instead of focusing on taking funding from those who's programs are getting cut. We're talking billions vs millions.

*After posting the following to my Facebook wall...
"wenzdays wisdom: DONT bury your mango peels in the garden under the bedroom window where the skunks will find them at 3am!"
It was suggested by my sister Mary I change the name to Wizzdom & by many others, that I start writing a weekly "Wenzday's Wizzdoms" blog of sorts.
If I do that, I'll post it at the News/Blog link at my website
& on my facebook. To be honest, I probably wont post it at myspace because sheeze, I'm trying to have a life!
*I've been at this for 3 hours & my eyes are blurry... sooooooo
Your Kindness and Uplifting Words are often what keeps an artist like me able to survive & write & have hope & find inspiration.
One & All for Your Love & Cheers
