Dear friends all, thank you for this enthusiastic response! I received this wonderful looking poster today from my label along with the following message: "Made this graphic for the grammy consideration voting if you want to post it out!" So we posted it, but when I saw the congratulatory responses, I reached out to my label- what exactly was this? Turns out this is for the first round of voting, an open ballot for all eligible names to be voted upon by the grammy voting body. The second round of voting, whenever that happens, is the one that will determine the nominees. I could feel deflated- BUT- the reason I am still excited is because I have been asking my label for years to submit my name in any relevant category in order for me to have an equal opportunity to be considered along with my many talented peers. Up until now that has never happened. Finally I made a firm request that I should be included along with all the other eligible artists- AND, they submitted my name! So that is what this list is about- the categories that seemed relevant for "consideration" for the first round of voting. If I never make it to the 2nd round I'm still excited about this accomplishment. Just being considered in an open list is exciting!! If you're in the music community and would like to look into becoming a part of the voting body, Rob is supplying the following link for more info.

My children's recording is finally re-issued! Listen and buy it here. For your kids, our kids, or big kids like me! Written while I was teaching songwriting to a group of "wild and wonderful" children at the Mountain Road Children's School in Upstate NY in the late 1970's, this album made it onto satellite radio, and elevator/retail store muzak programs everywhere. It has inspired some of those same kids, including mine, to become songwriters today. So put on your "silly hats" and prepare to have tons of fun! 

Important note: This cd is currently only available as an MP3 download with a printable cover, insert & back.
