My songs take root and grow in the rich & fertile ground of family, friends and community.    I want to acknowledge and express my gratitude to the many people who are part of helping my songs, and this recording, take shape and bloom: to my husband, David Tilsen, and my children, Rebecka, Eddie and Molly Tilsen for the countless ways they give me love, support, advice and insight in all my endeavors, and the same to the whole Sandstrom and Tilsen families and especially to Ken Tilsen, Mark Tilsen, and Joci Tilsen for the essential and important parts they each have played in making this recording happen; to Gayla Ellis for an artistic collaboration that has spanned many years and a friendship that has lasted many more; to the children and staff at the child care centers and schools I sing with regularly; to the Children’s Music Network and the Children’s Music Web; to the songwriters and the wonderful musicians on this recording who brought their talent, skill and artistry to these songs; to the great energy and beautiful singing of children in Soaring Voices (for the musical Valentines, too!) and to the dancing children on the cover. Thanks, also, to Lucinda Anderson, Yolanda Battles, Brenna Busse, Bob Cooper, Eric Cooperstein, Paul Couming, Nancy Cox, Letricia Cunningham, Shari & Martin Goff, Teresa Hichens-Olson, Kathy & Leo Lara, Faith Latimer, Denise Mayotte, Joan & Stu Mathews, Roy McBride, Sakina Mohamed, Naomi, Tina Nemetz, Katie Oberle, Bruce O’Brien, Tom Pease, Sarah Pirtle, Dan Rein, Leanna Sartin, Stuart Stotts, Josh Tilsen, Mala Vujnovich.
