Birthday Musings

Howdy Friends, Fans, Family,

It's my birthday! Another year gone!

One year ago today I was having the time of my life celebrating my successful campaign to raise the money to record Songs From the Science Frontier, having a cake smashed in my face live online! (Enjoy the video below!)

It's been a great, busy year for me, as you can see here on the blog.

I thought today might be a good day to post a preview of coming attractions...

Feedback from the CD so far is overwhelmingly positive and I hope to do more this year to get word out about it! I've created a live show around the songs, which I'm promoting to schools right now, and I also plan to tour regionally with it during Spring Break. I'm planning more songwriting residencies here in Stillwater, and I'll be performing again at the USA Science Festival in Washington, D.C. in April. I've put together a fantastic lineup of nine Born to Do Science programs for the library; one a month from September to May and I'm really looking forward to that!

Evalyn's first day of school was Friday and she's very excited to finally be a fifth grader!!

Many of you are wishing me happy birthday on my facebook page, and I appreciate it very much! Thanks!

If you'd like to do me a birthday solid, please make sure you've "liked" each of these facebook pages. It's a great way to keep up to date on what's going on with my performances, recordings, and Born to Do Science:

And here's that cake in the face video again from one year ago. Enjoy!
