Summer '08 Top 10 List


Is it hot enough where you are yet? Are you enjoying your Summer '08 so far? What about your Winter '08 for those of you faithful readers in the Southern hemisphere logging onto Pink Manhattan tonight? Yes, globalization is on my mind and so is our environment, changing climate, all those things that affect our shared world. In a time of rapid change and uncertainty, peculiar trends, strange rumors and legends coming from many sides, I'm still inspired and moving on with my passion which is songwriting, looking forward to announcing new songs and an album to come sometime in Fall 2008. It's been a long time coming, so I hope it will be worth the wait. Thanks for your warm support and patience. Lots more exciting news to come from WUJ Productions, so stay tuned.

Here's my tentative Top 10 list of Summer Favorites. With July 4th coming up, it's time now to enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer, kick back and relax with my loved ones, beloved orange blossom spritzers and lively summer fruits.
