Thank You

     “That is why artists, the more conscious they are of their “gift”, are led all the more to see themselves and the whole of creation with eyes able to contemplate and give thanks, and to raise to God a hymn of praise. This is the only way for them to come to a full understanding of themselves, their vocation and their mission.” - Saint John Paul ll

     If I inherit a full understanding of my vocation, my mission, and myself it’ll be because you have made me more conscious of my own “gift”, and therefore, my ability to give thanks in a complete and full way. This message is to indicate that we have, indeed, reached (and surpassed) our goal of $11,000 in order to support “Small Things With Great Love”.
     However thankful I may be, I feel obliged to point out what this really means to me. Yes, I reached my goal, and yes, it means I can create my debut album, but there’s more than that here. I have spent so much time feeling a bit isolated in my dreams and my understanding of beauty in a convenient world. Now, I do not feel alone anymore. It’s one thing for you to believe in me, it’s another to believe in what I am doing, and that is far more important than any thing money could support.
     My friends, I have a gift for you. I have the gift of myself to give to you through music. The music is simple, but it is loved, and it will be produced in a loving way. You will receive the fullness of this gift, and hopefully, it will point you to the greatness within yourself.

Thank you all,
James Rosenbloom
