'Meesha's Songs' tells the story of my dog, Meesha, who, along with my other animals, has been an inspiration to me. Meesha was found on the road in Tennessee and eventually she ended up at the SPCA of Upstate New York. As fate would have it, my mother had been volunteering there for many years and through this connection, Meesha and I began our journey together. My hope is that through these songs, children (and adults!) will think about the importance of supporting and adopting from animal shelters. They also honor the fact that animals love to communicate with humans. 'Meesha's Songs' has been rolling around in my head for many years. It wasn't until a friend and fellow animal communicator asked me if I ever sang little made up songs to my animals that I shared them with anyone. Both children and adults can relate to 'Meesha's Songs.' These songs help child- ren to understand how to care for dogs ("I Go Walkin' Down the Street"), and do so with a sense of humor. They include lessons about the importance of accept- ing others. ("Happy In My Heart") and describe how much animals value communication between animals and humans. ("Because I Love You," which could be considered an animal communication 'theme song'.) "Thunder Song" will ring true to many who have pets with thunderstorm anxiety and serves also to calm and support children who are afraid of storms. The song "Meesha's Story" serves to emphasize the importance of faith. I feel that God provided a gift with these songs, as, ever since they came to be, they have continuously filled me joy. This album is dedicated not only to Meesha and "her cats," but to all of God's creatures; especially those living in shelters waiting for their "forever homes.' It is also dedicated to my mother, who instilled in me a respect for animals and who's commitment to serving animals is boundless. 'Meesha's Songs' comes from my heart. I share these songs with the intention of bringing a little bit of joy to others. Recorded at Paulo Coelho Studios, Kinnelon, NJ Cover Art by Emily Thomson.
