Dear Listener/Viewer,

    As the Internet suffices as a distribution medium for music, I am not producing any physical CDs for this album. All that really concerns me is that the greatest number of people possible are able to listen to (and enjoy) this music. The "packaging" is what you see on the screen right here. Feel free to download these tracks, burn them, give them to friends, etc. I would, however, appreciate it if you directed them to this website, so that they can read some of the words that I provided to accompany this music.

    Feel free to make a donation to me if you enjoy this work. Much time and effort went into its conception and preparation. Also feel free to contact me with any comments.
