   I would like to thank Chris Caswell for taking the time to make this album special.  It isn't often that you can hire someone who is not only a great sound engineer but is also a great musician and can play many instruments very well.  Special thanks to Scottie of the website: Rampant Scotland who used to send out these weekly newsletters that introduced me to amazing Scottish poets and their wonderful poetry that I placed into some of my songs.  Thanks to Roxy for making this album finally happen.
