Greetings Dear Friends
Happy New Year to you. In fact, it would be more accurate for me to wish you a merry everything and a happy always. I feel very strongly that 2020 will be an excellent year. I feel very strongly that it is important to stay positive and optimistic in this time of increasing divisiveness. I believe it will be a time when our vision becomes ever clearer, ever keener.
Jennis' new album has been met by positive reviews and enthusiasm. You can read the reviews on our website. Thank you to those of you who have purchased a copy. If you haven't yet, but would like to, you can order one via Bandcamp - see below.
we are all sacred beings on a sacred path to sacredness.
we come from sacredness, we are born into sacredness.
everyday we are sacreducated so that we are better prepared for this sacredible journey.
we are sacredulous to learn that the sacred is not the opposite of the profane.
when we arrive at sacredness, we will be sacready.
we will recognize that we were dismembered.
we will remember that we were discognized.
we will realize that almost everything we thought we knew
we will see that everything, even evil and hatred, is sacred.
how could it not be?

20 20 VISION - OPTIMISM FOR THE FUTURE
I've decided to use my newsletter as a way to declare my optimism for the coming year, the coming decade. Despite the challenges we face, I remain deeply optimistic about our collective future. It seems as though the media, and life itself, is designed to continually point out the challenges and to bombard us with opportunities to feel pessimistic about the future. It's easy to feel like everything is going to hell, but I believe strongly that the opposite is true.
Let's review for a moment - what are the challenges?
-Trump (say no more)
-climate change - not only does it seem an imminent danger, but it is so hard to know what info to believe on this subject.
-pollution - plastic everywhere, micro-plastics, chemicals in the air, food, etc.
-technology run amok - self-driving cars, the threat of artificial intelligence, surveillance tools of great sophistication, etc. It can feel a little scary.
-confusion - we live in an era of information wars. What do we believe? What info can we trust?
Despite these challenges, many things are getting better. According to the traditional indicators by which we evaluate quality of life, things are getting better - not just for the more privileged sectors of society, but for everyone. Far more people are educated, far fewer are starving, lifespans have increased, etc. Here's a brief article from the New York Times that talks about this more thoroughly:THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER
For me the biggest bringer of hope and positivity is the realization that so many more people are waking up. One of the greater ironies of having someone like Trump as leader of the free world is that it has caused so many people to stop and take a closer look at things. The masses have always been controlled by a self-serving elite, using a variety of Machiavellian tactics. We've been lied to and manipulated throughout history. What is encouraging to me, is that it seems that more and more people are aware of this, instead of being sound asleep. Our dominant belief systems, institutions and leaders are being questioned like never before.
On a more spiritual/metaphysical note, I believe that, more than ever, humanity is straddling two realities. More people are operating out of the higher frequencies. The actions of the darkness are becoming more and more visible and increasingly we are choosing the light. It seems to me that some people are being drawn solidly into a 5-D reality, while some people are choosing solidly to align with the old 3-D reality.
I feel that it is very important that we stay positive, that we choose to see the cup as half full and not half empty. When thinking about the huge technological changes that are on the horizon, for example, let us not forget that technology in itself is not evil or dangerous. It is only the way in which humanity chooses to use this technology that has the potential for harm and negativity. If we have faith that good will and compassion will prevail, then the new tech will serve to better our quality of life. The darkness may continue to try their tricks, but they won't work.
I continue to be eternally grateful to be alive at such an amazing, exciting time in human history. What will happen next? I can't wait to see.
Our New Album, 'The Mirror',
Is Now Available!
Hello Dear Friends
We are so happy to have finally released the album we spent the past year working on. It was such fun involving the various talented musicians who helped to create the lush sonic landscapes to illustrate our songs. We are thrilled with the high quality of the recording and Dean Drouillard's fine mixing skills. We feel this album is a major step up from our debut in many respects.
It's a bit of a strange time to be a recording artist. Gone are the days of bringing one's new wares to record stores to proudly see them displayed. Illicit downloading, the sharing of entire music collections between friends and now streaming services have taken a lot of the impact away from the proud moment of a new release. Let's face it, the music market is quite saturated and it is harder than ever to make a splash.
Before we move into the next chapter with our music, we wanted to take a moment to be sure you were all aware of our new baby and how you may obtain a copy to enjoy for yourself. We have CDs ($15) and 4G data sticks with both albums, videos, lyrics and photos ($20). You can also download the digital album for $7.
While we are available on iTunes and streaming services, the best way to support independent music is not by giving your hard-earned cash to Apple or Spotify (whose pay structures exploit musicians). Instead, sites like Bandcamp are far more direct ways to explore and support music. Bonus: Bandcamp is full of interesting independent music!
You can listen to the songs on Bandcamp. To access our new CD on Bandcamp, click here: THE MIRROR
We'd like to thank everyone who has supported us by purchasing music and coming out to concerts. Thanks in advance to anyone else who chooses to buy a copy of The Mirror. We love you!
We hope you enjoy the new tunes!
