'Do You Think That You Can Love Me Like My Dog Does'
NOW, THE REST OF THE STORY...
I have a whole vision ahead, a series of creative projects that serve to uplift everyone in all walks of life, everywhere & to make people feel better about themselves and each other.
Let the fun begin...
If you haven't seen my 'Older Ladies' video, that's the numero uno thing to do. Just click the picture below. It'll give you a great idea of what shenanigans are going to happen in my NEW music video project, 'If I were Enlightened'.
This whole creative whirlwind started in a living room on the Mendocino coast, just goofing off with my girlfriends at a weekend party. We were all musicians sitting around trading songs. I started singing my 'Older Ladies' song, and everyone started chiming in.
After going through it once, just for kicks, we decided to act it out and film it. Little did any of us know when it got posted on Facebook, it would get 30,000 views in less than one week! Well, I took that as a sign that it was time to make my first music video. I asked everyone to keep the original off You Tube and set out to make the 'real deal'. I can't begin to tell you how much fun we had.In fact, it was such a blast, here I am, doing my best to make it possible to do it again!
THERE ARE SOME REALLY GREAT REWARDS FOR BACKERS, including some of my art. Here are a few examples.
To get an idea of the arc of what's going to happen, I invite you to compare the after version of 'Older Ladies' (above) to the before version (below). While you're there, you can like my music page and get periodic creative updates if the spirit moves.
I want to do the exact same thing that I did with 'Older Ladies' to my song, 'If I Were Enlightened', take a spontaneous idea, flesh it out and make something really entertaining for the whole world to enjoy.
Here's a snippet of the before version of 'If I Were Enlightened' with the same wacky women at the same party that started the Older Ladies fire!
If you come aboard as a backer, you can actually have a voice in what the after video of 'Enlightenment' is going to look like. How fun is that?
Now all I need is to:
- generate some Benjamins
- gather another bunch of terrific people (many of the older ladies can't wait to do it again!)
- record the single
- have the most fun any of us could ever imagine and have that translate through the video
- have everyone involved feel like they got out of it more than they gave
Here's one more dealio. I was coached just to go for funding for one video, but just between you and me, my dream is to fund the next 3 videos, one right after the other. Anything I make above and beyond funding 'Enlightenment' will go right into the next two songs. (Dog lovers stay tuned!)
That's the shortness and sweetness of it. I'd love it if you would be a part of this magic journey. It'll be great fun. I've got some very cool rewards for anyone who wants to play, so be sure to check them out.
Thanks for helping me make some more dreams come true.
Much love to all,

Risks and challenges
Gosh, Older Ladies went so smoothly, it's hard to think of obstacles. I did my best to create rewards that I could easily fulfill without being too taxed. I might need a little time to do everything, but I think I built that into the timelines.
I pride myself on being a person who does what I say I will do. Anyone who knows me well will vouch for that. If I need to re-adjust anything, you have my word I will contact you personally and come up with a great solution that feels good to everyone involved.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
