Well… at long last, election day is just around the corner. I’m sure you’ve read about the concern for mail in voting. My family and I will indeed be voting by mail but we will not be mailing in our ballots. Instead, to make sure each and every vote is counted we will be dropping off our mail-in ballots in person.
IMPORTANT TO KNOW
You do not need to MAIL in your MAIL-IN ballot!
All states allow for in-person drop off at the County Clerk or Registrar, or your local Board of Election.
Just do an online search for your county and find where to drop if off.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON
I am excited to announce that I have a new smooth jazz single coming soon. The song is called “Chill” and it features a sax solo by the legendary Gerald Albright! What a cool dude. I will be posting more about it over the next little while.
In the meantime, Here are a few tunes:
And… If you’re in the mood for some easy listening and just want to unplug for a few hours, check out the replay of my Jazznet 247 radio show where I play some of my favorites songs and artists.
This post is to let you know that Friday October 4th is Global Co-operation Day. Global Co-operation Day is about the environment. Its about planting trees…worldwide.
It is an initiative by Liz Greenwell and Adam Greenwell called ForestNATION (some of the Greenpeace folks) in hopes that people around the world will cooperate in GLOBAL TREE PLANTING. All you have to do it plant a seedling. You can plant it any where you want. Doesn’t matter where you live in the world. It is both an actual and symbolic act to help us re-connect with nature. You can register your tree at the link below and it could be featured in a documentary called ‘Watering the Fields of Humanity’.
Global Cooperation Day Simulcast airs at 12pm NZ, Midnight UK, 4pm PST, 7pm EST
Some of my music will be featured and celebrities around the world (as well as myself) will be doing voice overs for the simulcast. PLEASE PLANT A TREE if you can.
I will also be doing an interview on Blog Talk Radio with Mary LaLuna on this topic. She’s the host of ArtSees Diner Radio and she is also Ambassador to ForestNATION. Her show’s called “Imagine You Imagine Me, Musicians 4 Global Cooperation Day 10/04”. I look forward to speaking with her. Highlights will be featured on Friday during the show, and the full length interview will be on Saturday 8pm CENTRAL TIME. (I wrote that big so you would notice lol)
Trees… the ocean… nature…. the health of both the planet and ourselves… these things mean a lot to me. And I hope to you as well.
I wrote a song about the environment called “For Come Ya” (before we came here). It reflects how it may be to our benefit to begin respecting life as traditional people used to… Native peoples looked at the choices they made from a distance of seven generations… That is- they did not make decisions based on themselves alone. I’ve always loved this concept. They based it on what will this mean to to us “seven generations from now”. I believe that forward vision is something sorely lacking today.
