August Month In Review
Hello again everyone and don’t look now but August has come to an end. I remember the song about the “lazy hazy days of summer”, but somehow that just does not apply to this past summer at all. It’s been an eventful summer for nearly everyone I’ve talked with and the pace seems to show no signs of letting up. Since the changes going on are all good news in one form or another I say let’s keep it up!
As you know by now I have released my CD entitled “This Is Chris Mentch” this past month and it is available on I Tunes and just about every other entertainment media services known to man for those interested in the musical facet of As I See It. It is a personal treat to write, record and share this work with you. I was fortunate to work with very talented musicians and producers and simply love the chance to share it all with you. Music is perhaps the most powerful manner of communication so no collection of work meant to touch or inspire would be complete without that musical component. I am trying to touch the heart and spirit with the entire body of work that is As I See It, so whatever the topic, it needs to be addressed in the language of the soul; from my heart to yours.
This past month we also celebrate the kinship of As I See It with The Wild Animal Sanctuary. The sanctuary director Mr. Pat Craig gave a warm welcome and support to the release of the album and to As I See It and was also kind enough to allow us to post links between our websites. This is a seminal moment indeed for it is a shining example of the tenacity of the human heart to constantly seek out and embrace compassion and compassionate people. This is how single voices become a chorus, in rather short order, all on the wings of a simple yet profound idea; to deliver desperate souls from a life of despair to a loving home with a bright future and to give a voice to those who perhaps have no voice in this world at all. It is with great pride and a joyous heart that we support the people and the spirit of The Wild Animal Sanctuary. Keep up the lovely work my dear friends!
The month of August also has As I See It beginning a series of short videos on You Tube as we continue to explore other creative outlets to compliment our efforts here. I am excited about the future I see as we broaden the creative facets and find still more opportunities to share. I hope you find this continuing journey a complete pleasure.
I will be posting new material both lyrics and poems this fall so please check in again soon and let us know your thoughts.
