In the spirit of the #metoo campaign that calls attention to the prevalence of sexual harassment, the title cut of this album, " The Makings of My Illustrious Career" will soon be available as a single, to be followed by a reissue of the album.
"So don't waste your worn-out stories
Cause I've heard 'em' all before And I don't give a damn about That title on your door
You might sell lots of records
But I don't like the price
You might make me rich and famous
But you ain't makin' me tonight"

"LIFE IS A PAINTING MY FRIEND WITH NO BEGINNING OR END
IT’S JUST A PROCESS IN TIME WHERE SHADOWS APPEAR TO BE LINES
WE CHOOSE ALL THE COLORS AND TONES
WE’RE NEVER PAINTING ALONE AND WHEN WE PAINT FROM OUR HEART
OUR LIFE IS A WORK OF ART
I KNOW I MUST LIVE MY ART BY GIVING MY HEART
AND BEING THE ARTIST IN ME
