releasing, re-visualizing, rebounding, reliving

I am a very happy girl. Why? Because I have a sense of completion and that is one of my definitions of success.. to complete something. I've been working on a project for over a year. I didn't know where it would lead me, or how arduous the road may be... but I brought it to fruition, with grace, passion and fortitude: extraOrdinary life. We all know that life is, well, long. Ongoing. Days turn into months turn into years... a lifetime of memories, friendships, experiences, journeys. And this past year has been a mini life journey,....
From writing songs through my twenties and to now, on funky keyboards and pianos all around the world. I remember sitting at a piano in Santa Fe New Mexico, considering how to use the swamp sounds i had just recorded on my dat player watching an aligator in New Orleans. Writing Release Me in Vermont on a hotel piano after hours, at the beginning of my Eric Idle tour. Writing at home in Australia, surrounded by the bush, Circus of Life. Spaceship, on an old upright in Santa Monica on a gloomy day. My Extraordinary Life at home in Sherman Oaks, on my keyboard after listening to Maxwell,.. finding a groove on my little drum machine and tracking the beginnings of what you hear on the Cd, on my 16 track hard disk recorder. Writing The Wind in Cabo San Lucas, after letting go of a recent love on Divorce Beach, sending him to the wind. Hollywood, at home, about 1am, with a glass of red wine, dreaming of wide open spaces....
Then rehearsing the band... bringing my songs to groovy life ready for tracking..., practicing at home with them, then in at AMP our NoHo rehearsal studio.
Then recording, first the drums and bass, then overdubbing the guitars, loops, my keyboards and piano, percussion, saxaphone, weird soundscapes. Finally the vocals. Lots of editing and lots of fun... day in day out, to finishing the little baby songs and plotting them on the timeline called an album. I have learned so much being in the studio.... understanding more and more about arranging, about musical instruments, about listening to the divine and embracing those buddhist mistakes that make little gems within a song.
Then came mixing, the levels, the sonic textures, what needs to be heard, or subliminal. Our ears are amazing. I became so sensitive to every little nuance. Then the mastering process, where i didn't think the music could be taken any higher, it was... to its highest. Coming to a final conclusion on the song order must have been the hardest process of all. It took me a long time, and i sought advice from many because i could no longer see the forest through the trees. i was so embroiled i needed objective opinion. I have a great tight little team with me, encouraging me, guiding me, sharing their expertise. I am blessed.
Sunday night we put on a launch at Monsoon Cafe in Santa Monica. 170 people, grand piano, soft lighting, great food. Amazing energy. The band were fabulous. The crowd... excited. We had a great night. extraOrdinary life, my new album, is about a journey, a life long journey of discovery. It's not over. It's just begun. I am sharing moods, stories, feelings that we all feel, and a sense that life, no matter how simple, or complex, or ordinary, or fabulous.. is all.... great. I embark on sharing my songs with you, in my travels, from close to far. I will journey to the east coast in September, Australia at Christmas. Europe next year. And in between, cris cros across these United States.
I am also at a point in my life where i know i can do anything i put my heart to. I don't see, this time around, that i have to throw myself out into the world. I have nothing to prove. My pursuit of excellence is simply in creating, in the art. My art is now hanging on the walls. You are welcome to come and see it, observe, make up your own mind, and have a piece for your own stereo collection. I hope you do take something home with you, a life extraordinary for you...

    Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
    Consider the Possibilities�
    Watch this One to Trad,e!

    Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
    genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

    EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
    The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not
    remain on the ground floor for long.

    KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    -Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
    the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
    REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

    These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
    before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
    lumber is 30-50 years.

    Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
    of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
    the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
    ensuring higher returns on investments.
    he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
    as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
    the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
    time to replant and develop new root systems.

    Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
    Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
    anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
    its initial 9-year cycle.

    Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
    Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
    continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
    dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
    about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
    250,000 infant plants per month.

    Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
    owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
    and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
    Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
    known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
    This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
    Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
