In the Arms of Love will revert back to SSRI in 2007 – until then it is licensed to Higher Octave/EMI. Since we will release a new package at that time, I might as well do some work on the music. I have a bunch of ideas for changes and additions I want to make and will get started on that in the new year.
We are leaving for Denver tonight and I won’t take my laptop with me. I think I will observe a few days of radio silence during the holidays.
I would like to leave you – for now – with this:
What is the purpose of millions of years of evolution?
Let me tell you a secret: it’s YOU! It’s all so you can experience this life.
Lots of animals have to die so you can live, many humans work to enable your life, and much energy is used up by you.
So, please, take a deep breath, hug a child or a friend, kiss a lover, enjoy a meal alone or with company, take in a sunset, take a deep listen to a piece of music, enjoy a walk… just a take a few moments during this holiday to enjoy this incredible, this unbelievable, this very precious experience – your life.
Happy Solstice tonight and Happy Holiday weekend!
