So I had a tough lil guy for drawing blood yesterday. This lil 7 lb'er was a drama king. He did not like to be touched or disturbed when sleeping. His cry can be heard for a very large radius and his parents will never be able to ignore. In a bit of a rush I did not turn on any music, warmed his heel, did his o2 sats, all the while he was bellowing and trying to twist and turn. Immediately I stopped, grabbed my phone and put Ollie's Song on next to his ear. Within about 10 seconds his bellowing turned to dramatic sobs and he was quieting to hear the music. He stopped twisting and trying to fight, quieted and without further ado, his blood was drawn, and he was fast asleep!

I'm listening to your music and I really love it!  Simple, pure and spiritual.

OH MY GOSH!!!! Just clicked on your album... and of course went to Star Beings because of the disscusion we are in on World Flute circle about horses and flutes, and this is so about my feelings about my horses in the sky.  And it sounds like a horse theme to open.  Man my universes just collided in a grand way! Feel free to link this song under my horse, Sunflower's photo - I would be honored.  I have goosebumps and tears in my eyes.  I wrote a poem of my horse's passing and this goes so well...oh my heavens... I am going to be listening to this all day.

We are lookiing forward to receiving your CD (Songs of Turtle Island) and sharing it with members of our tribe, many of whom play (or play at) the flute. Some actually make them. Your Stream video reminded us of the waterfall on our tribal grounds.

I listened to it. Love it! Got to have it! I want to do a music video for you.

Being a huge fan of Steppenwolf's Magic Carpet Ride, I had to listen to and relax to Carpet Ride.  Both songs transport the listener to different locations in the mind and body.  Of course both songs are magic in their own way.  Carpet Ride takes me to a very mellow and relaxed location in my mind.
