Asking for Help


A man just shared this video with me after contributing to my New Album FUNdraising Campaign

It really hit home because, like Amanda Palmer, I am asking for your help. "You" being not just a generic YOU, but a YOU who has enjoyed my music in the past... or who has just discovered that they enjoy it. 

Being that I am a devotional chant artist, I suspect that this "YOU" will be a select number of people. However, being that this is the internet, a select group of people can still be thousands, millions, or even billions of people. Why not?

Anyway, the way this works is that making a CD is expensive, so I ask YOU (again, the select YOU) to buy the CD before it's done so I can pay to make it.

It's a short-term investment, if you will.

 I'll give you your CD this summer once it's completed.

Besides pre-purchasing the CD, there are other ways to make bigger contributions and get fun prizes in return.

I really like doing my FUNdraising this way because it gets everyone involved in this music project.

Thanks for considering this,
Sirgun

Nature's Intelligence

Just when you think your heart is full... something comes to expand it even more.

On February 11, I delivered a baby boy into this world!

Beyond the amazing amount of work that no one could have ever successfully prepared me for, a baby is certainly a MIRACLE of Nature.

For reasons much more obvious to me now, Nature is usually referred to as a woman: MOTHER NATURE.

Before I went through this incredible process, I had some conceptual understanding of how wonderous the female body is, but now I am in total awe.

I mean, my body knew to make 10 fingers, 10 toes, a perfect little nose... ears... not to mention all the other features of his body I can't even see, which seem to be functioning perfectly.

When I think about the 9 months of mysterious growth happening inside my uterus, I am humbled by Nature's intelligence.

What amazing things we are capable of as women. Wah!

Blessings,
Sirgun


INSPIRED ARTIST PODCAST EPISODE #71: Genevieve Solomon

I met Genevieve first as a client, then as a teacher, and now as a guest...  Cute example of the malleable roles we take on for one another,...
