Now, I've been going through some significant changes in my Life... and working on some pretty wonderful projects. I moved to a new apartment in a new neighborhood in Manhattan. I just wrote a new dramatic one-act play, I'm sitting on top of another that is starting to generate real interest... and I'm still pushing the new musical "Possibility Junkie". I think we've really got something wonderful on our hands. Here's a little taste.

OH!!! At the beginning of the summer I was lucky enough to be part of the very first Global Family Reunion
. At that gig, I shared a stage with legendary songwriter Paul Williams, and partied on the main stage with Sister Sledge, and then did a set of my own. It was very, very cool.
Here's a moment from that gig.

Gotta keep focusing on the beauty in this world. The ugliness will always be there. Let's all keep trying to move a little closer to the Light every day. I have work to do. The tools of my work are music and the written word. We all have different ways of feeding the beauty and starving the ugly. I hope we all get use them during our next lap around the Sun. I hope we all feel a part of One world in 2015.
Oh listen... nobody is more disappointed or heart-broken than me that there was no video from "The Something'th Annual Year End Concert" last year. But trust me, we had a blast... again. Actually we had people travel from Maryland and Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, just so they could be in town for this gig. (A couple from Europe actually told they scheduled their trip to the Big Apple around this concert!)
So very cool.
Here are some photos from last year's gig.

A note from filmmaker Dean Love...
As you may know I am producing a documentary about "That Guitar Man from Central Park". I would like to ask all David's fans out there to write me and tell me any stories you may have about David and his playing in Central Park and how it has affected you or what it has meant to you. I've already heard some great stories, but I know there are more that I haven't heard. So if you got a story to tell about David and his music, please briefly write it out and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be contacting people from the stories submitted to interview them for possible inclusion in the film. Thank you and I look forward to seeing everyone on the hill this summer. - Dean
