This is a fantastic experiement. What happens when one of the world's best musicians plays for free as a street musician. Do the people value the music? Take 20 minutes and read through this and listen to the wonderful music on the videos. Really interesting. What does this teach us?

Just found this here on JohnWren.com back in July 2007, also post of photo of my nephew Jason's first game at Arapahoe and the fact I was starting to use Facebook.

Dr. Ellis believed in short-term therapy that called on patients to focus on what was happening in their lives at the moment and to take immediate action to change their behavior. ''Neurosis,'' he said, was ''just a high-class word for whining.''

''The trouble with most therapy is that it helps you to feel better,'' he said in a 2004 article in The New York Times. ''But you don't get better. You have to back it up with action, action, action.''

I give much of my time away as a volunteer.

But right now I need my next paid assignment. If you or someone you know needs help with sales, marketing, or a special project, let's brainstorm how we might work together and what makes sense as the best next step. Contact me at (303)861-1447 or John@JohnWren.com.
