    MySpace message from Mike Serna

    Whats up?

    Busy here, making flutes, helping Judy and running around like a chicken with his head cut off! Alot of time spent doing music related business. I'd rather spend more time performing but it's neccessary. When I take any breaks, I play and at night mostly. Even put some flute to Lynyrd Skynyrd and it really rocked!!!! I like to push the limits with the flute! Haven't reached the limits yet because there isn't any! Where is your trooper stationed at or is he out? Like to correspond, as I try to involve my self in any and all veterans affairs that I am able to. I often do performances and my veteran related poetry. One was published in a veterans magazine whos name I cant recall. I think Judy has a file I might could send. My heart feels the pain of our warriors. PTSD is the monster I'm after! I pray to the Creator that this poetry will help someone to heal and in turn, help another!. Hope to hear from you soon. If you can forward this to all our friends as I'm pretty bad on the computer.
    ENJUH! (ALL IS GOOD) APACHE

    Re: MySpace message from Mike Serna

    Mike is joining us to perform in Crossville during our Honoring for the Vets March 28 & 29.
    We are honored that he is coming to be with us.

    Re: MySpace message from Mike Serna

    Thank you for that update also, Dana! A friend had mentioned a powwow that Mike was supposed to be at but I didn't catch which one.

    And then there's this addition:

    flyingman here with other news from the Mike Serna front. Mike's latest CD is getting radio play from Hawaii to
    Maine, and Alaska to Merritt Island, Florida. More than 40 stations have picked up on it in the first week.

    Soundscapes, Music Choice and Hearts of Space are reviewing the CD. Celestial Reasonings and other syndicated
    radio programs are spinning it on numerous affiliated stations. Two videos are using cuts for soundtracks.

    Mike is riding high in the saddle, and he deserves it! He is a good man working hard and defying the odds.

    We more than welcome any positive reviews, comments and support that we can gather from friends. And, not to ride
    anybody's coat tail, but our good brother and talented friend Arvel is in on this release, also. And our best wishes and
    hopes that Mike's CD will help to give a big boost for his soon to be released CD. Aho!
