I'm shooting for a midyear 2003 release; but no
promises yet. We're just beginning to look at the technical
challenges of combining 10 different microphone schemes, 4 different
recording formats, and nearly 650 voices onto one six minute
segment of CD.
Thank you for your patience, and continued support!!
Well, it's over.
It's been quite a year. 10 conventions. Over 400
people. Over 600 voices. All coming together, binding our world
The WorlDream isn't a song. It isn't a recording
(though we'll have that to remind us of the fulfillment of
the Dream). It's a feeling. It's the knowing- that
wherever you are, whatever you do; you belong to a global community.
This started as my dream. For many of you, this
became your dream as well.
It has been a year of great tragedy and loss.
We've had the horror and anger left by the attacks on 11 September.
In addition to the losses from Ground Zero, we have lost a couple
of our own as well. Alasdair Prett in the UK and Merce Crain
in the US will not have the opportunity to hear their voices
on the CD when it is released. My heart cries, and my soul mourns
with their families and loved ones.
It has been a year of growth and deepened personal
connections; not only for myself; but for many others. A year
of healing, as well.
From the deepest parts of my heart and soul, I
thank you for helping to bring this dream to reality. May the
connections, bonds, and family that you have found through the
year support and enrich you for the rest of your days.
So- it really isn't over. It's only the beginning.
This is NOT the year to miss a Filk Convention!
I'm a filker. There are several pages and sites
out there that describe filk, just do a search
or follow my links to find
more if you don't know what it is.
Filk is my community. My neighbors, my friends,
my family. I've been introduced to new family all over the world
because of filk, the music it creates, and the fellowship it
So- for the new Millennium; I want to see all
my friends and family. And there's only one way I know of doing
that- by going to every filk convention
that will be held next year.
So, find out what the Dream
is! Find which conventions are participating!
Check out the song, and

And I'll be seeing you sometime in 2001!
