I've previously written about Girl All Alone but that was three years ago when I only one reader1.
The song is about a girl who keeps all her dreams in a jar so I thought it would be cool to have a group of artists create Dream Jars. I didn't exactly know what that would mean but I think they turned out fantastic. Once all the jars were done I booked a studio and my dad and I did our best impression of studio photographers to get all the shots. I'd love to hear what you think if you'd like to leave a comment at my Facebook page.
It's been a long journey to get to this point. I wrote the song in the mid '90s. I've performed many times over the years at shows. I did a blog post 3 years ago with the simple demo. I recorded it for my Born To The World EP in 2010. I did the jar project in 2012. Next I'm going to create a book using the jars. You can keep up with the progress of this, and other, projects by signing up for my monthly newsletter on the right -->
Even though it's taken 15 years to get this song and its story to this point I'm glad I've completed this. Small steps lead to big things. Just because it may take a while dosen't mean it's not worth doing. In fact, the fact that it'll require time may just mean it's the worthwhile thing to do.
Some of the artits said they'd like to do another jar so I think I'll do another series of Dream Jars. If you're interested in joining us get in touch and I'll let you know the details when it happens.
1 I've easily doubled that by now and I love every single both of you.
