Thank you Kenwood and Keith, you are both phenomenal people,
the radiance of your hearts and souls make the music sing.
Thank you Nancy for your scope and brilliance, balance and agility,

Thank you Dave, you are a venerable master of sound and always super fun to work with.
Thank you Jim for your very fine work and ultra-positive attitude.
Extra Special thanks to you Karen, you are my partner in life, my inspiration, my oasis, my joy, my love and so very much more, I am endlessly grateful for you. Michael
Music is the conduit, the sphere and the bond that unites us,
diving deep into the fertile heart of our existence, we explore,
fluid and unbound, aloft in the vital universe of love and peace,
and onward we go together, revealing the light, we celebrate,
consciously expanding, forceful, determined and unfettered.
