Naming this Record

I want to name this recording something with "Watershed" in it since the project brings together songs, ideas, art and images -- like water draining from all over into one river or lake.

So what name exactly? Watershed? The Watershed? The Watershed Project? Watershed Change? Watershed Down?

Bring your great ideas (like you did for JRL...)

So what is a watershed?

"A critical point that marks a division or a change of course; a turning point" That is just one definition of a watershed. Applied to geography the course of change would be water, however, applied to life, the courses being changed or changing are endless.

Just "Watershed" would get my vote...

But, of course, you know the ins and outs of what you're up to and what you're after much better than I...

I would give my vote to just "Watershed" as well.

I found -- after working on this concept -- three other albums titled "Watershed." Maybe not a big deal but it's kind of nice to not come in fourth if there's a better option -- especially one that nails the concept better... so I'm still looking.

Thanks for the ideas . . . it will probably be Watershed unless we get a brain wave before we have to nail it down,

I really like the Idea "watershed Pond" an obvious conclusion to a watershed. It also reminds me of walden pond. So, the flow of that is time tested, the meaning would be the storage place of things collected from a watershed. As far as the sample songs. Carbon Blanket is very nice. The sample piece, was also great. You remind me more and more of Niel Y every time. That is the highest compliment I can pay. He may be, if not, then one of the greatest songwriters ever. Eyes to the soul. My friend John, you too have that gift. Great to hear from you
