Did you make it through Halloween? Anybody out there in sugar shock from eating all the candy you didn’t give out to “Trick or Treaters?”
(or that you stole from your children? ;o)
Personally, I am not a big fan of the holiday. I’ve finally gotten to the place where I just don’t want candy. Blecch! And I’m pleased to say that on my high fat/low carb/moderate protein diet, I woke up this morning another pound lighter! I’m GONNA see my abs I’m gonna, I’m gonna….
But enough about ME said the Songwriter! LOL
I thought you might like an update on the unfolding adventure of my Last Concert on November 19th.
(Pay attention! there’s a mind mastery message hidden in here)
I was a little CONCERNED there for a while that the 10 WORLD CLASS musicians I’d invited to the event would outnumber the audience…
OK I was a LOT CONCERNED… More like FREAKING OUT… :o)
I’ll admit I had to use all my proven anxiety relief tools and techniques to chill…out… about… it….
and just get more focused, resourceful and tenacious…
HOWEVER, there is GOOD NEWS! As of this morning we have sold 19 out of the 50 available seats. In case you missed it, the 1st 30 tickets come with a unique, one of a kind GIFT valued at $100 by the independent research firm of Wile E. Coyote., LLC. The bonus is an original painting by this crazy artist, musician, transformational communicator guy Mark Shepard.
I only have 30 paintings total for the giveaway, so if I can do the math in my head there are only 11 paintings left. We sold 6 tickets last night so we are making progress.
Special thanks to Margaret R. and Ursula L. and to THE Leslie M. Thornton who Bought FOUR! Cowabungah!
Folks will get to CHOOSE their painting on the night of the concert IN the order they paid for their tickets.
I was hoping that would inspire people to climb down off the fence and COMMIT! (and it seems to be working but we are not “out of the woods” yet).
Ultimately I want to create the most intensely wonderful evening of healing, heart opening, creative, improvisational, life affirming, love filled, sparkling MUSIC ever. It’s not just a concert, It’s a “retreat”. It’s a health spa for your ears…
So if you are still thinking about it, now’s the time.
IF on the other hand you are put off by the $40 bucks being “too much” and you don’t particularly care for my paintings but you want to come to the concert, What WOULD motivate you? What WOULD seal the deal for you? I want to sell EVERY ticket BEFORE the 19th so that I can just focus on the musicians and the audience and making great music.
And again please remember that I am not putting any of this money into my pocket, it all goes to the musicians, the video crew, the recording studio and dinner for the “cast and crew”. AND I’m going to donate 10% of whatever we take in to the Albany Peace Project.
So that’s the update on the 19th. Whew!

NEXT ITEM ON THE UPDATE AGENDA:
Now! Back to the present moment. I’m spending most of today getting ready to fly to South Carolina on Wednesday for two packed days of Bullying Prevention Assemblies for an entire K-12 school district.
Normally, when I drive to a gig I pack my little car full of state of the art Bose sound system, guitar amp, special effects gizmos, drums, and guitars etc. But since I’m flying I have to pack much smaller and lighter… should be fascinating to see how I get it all on the plane :o)
I’m going to attempt to “Vlog” throughout the trip in order to tell the story so “stay tuned.”
NEXT week. I’m flying to Las Vegas for participate in Kimberly Seltzer’s 3 day Self Improvement, Confidence Building, Dating and Relating gathering ever. I’m very excited… Kim is rocking it in the Podcasting world and is the real deal. If any of you are interested in joining us send me an email and I’ll get you the info asap. the dates are 11/10-12 for that.
She wants me to sing a certain song for her peeps…
I was so moved by working with her that I wrote a song for her inspired by her therapeutic wardrobe intervention with ME.
So that will be your transformation tune for today:
That’s it for the moment.
I know today’s email is a little light on the Personal Mind Mastery Message but there IS one. I don’t know if you noticed it or not…
Here it is…Taking action and following your path with heart often challenges us DEEPLY and offers us the opportunity to confront our fears, our discomfort zones and ultimately grow. Like doing intense resistance training with weights or high intensity interval training, it’s often accompanied by temporary unpleasantness.
For me, self promotion is INTENSELY uncomfortable…
But it also greatly expands what is possible. As I’ve said over and over again, taking action doesn’t guarantee that you get what you set out to get. But doing nothing definitely guarantees that you will keep getting what you’ve been getting.
So your assignment today, (should you choose to accept it), is to do one small thing that scares you. Do one small thing that challenges you. Do one small thing that is uncomfortable but that could lead you to a better life. Do one small thing that doesn’t have a guaranteed outcome. And notice what comes up.
Got it? Coool.
Talk to you soon!
p.s. BTW my new course “How To Get Over A Breakup” is still free at the moment because I need beta testers to climb into it and give me honest feedback, testimonials and questions. I just added a couple new bonuses to it as well so check it out BEFORE I start charging for it.
