I received the following email this morning:
Congratulations The MY HERO Project and Guitars in the Classroom have selected your song “I Am A Pond” to be a finalist in our 2015 Hero Song Contest.

Of course I am tickled by this! (I believe it was entered into the ECO Song Contest).
Both of these organizations are pretty amazing groups of people with life-changing and affirming goals.
So there you go. Inspired by the curriculum of the naturalist director of a youth camp, I wrote this theme song, which has been endorsed by a macrobiologist at Colorado State University as “true and accurate in every part.” It has been used in a middle school science curriculum and sung at church camps and youth events.
It was recorded in 2001 and now, 15 years later, a Finalist for an award that didn’t exist when the song was conceived and born.
Ain’t life grand?
Watch a live performance of the song below:
