Newest CD Release - June 2012
The Mysteries of Life
This CD is dedicated to all the folks in the 21st century who respect and revere nature, for without them future generations wouldn't have any wilderness left. Also to those folks who never understood what nature and it's great force is all about? The best way to answer this question is a sense of connection and involvement. The Ancient First Nations people summarized it best in this old saying "The farther a person's feet are removed from the earth the less respect they have for living and growing things." This saying might be old however it is just as applicable in the 21st century as it was thousands of years ago. May the lessons and teachings of the Ancient First Nations Elders be instilled in future generations. Let's do it for our children. Yours in conservation Tony O'Leary
