I don’t really care what the media reports: I don’t think the economy is turning around all that quickly. We are all feeling the problems of a slowed, stumbling economy. But some people are getting hit worse than others. Cypress Rosewood, an SL musician is having an especially poor 2010. It was just a few months ago his home was burglarized, his musical equipment stolen. Thanks to some good fortune and quick-thinking friends, most of the equipment was ultimately recovered. But not all. And there was damage. So it seems particularly cruel fate that the flooding in Nashville, Tennessee has cost Cypress his home and store. Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start to heal the world. I have no doubts this week. I’m doing what I can to help Cypress Rosewood.
The following is lifted verbatim from Honour McMillan’s blog, with her permission:
Over the past weekend Cypress Rosewood lost his home and shop to the devastating floods in Nashville Tenn. Friends of Cypress have responded and are calling for a benefit held this Fri Please note times we hope you can stop by and give some support to one of SLs’ beloved musicians.
Just look at the line up of great SL Musicians appearing at the benefit:
* Von Johin
* Arman Finesmith
* Skye Galaxy
* Senjata Witt
* Frets Nirvana
* Gina Stella
* Anek Fuchs
* Bluemonk Rau
* Joaquin Gustav
* Kolor Fall
* Zachh Cale
* Moondoggirl Moomintoog
This has been a tough year in terms of disasters and a tough one economically. It’s been tougher on some than others. We can’t fix all the problems of the world or make all the bad stuff go away but we can help one of our own. The fact that we can also enjoy an amazing lineup of musicians is the gravy. 🙂
If you can make it to Mardi Gras Park on Friday, May 7 and help out Cypress then I hope you do so. Please share this with your friends!
