Not long ago, I lost my 2 wolf hybrids, Titus and Seluh. I got them when they were 10 days old and we ( my hubby and I) bottle fed them as pups. We had the good fortune of living with them for 16 glorious years on our 10 acres outside of Santa Fe, NM. However, Titus (the male) got into some rat poisoning and passed away before we were able to get him to the vet. A short while after that Seluh faded away from grief.
Last year, I began recording my new record “This Ol’ War” which I think is a fitting title since any kind of “war” brings loss. And loss, as you can probably guess, that is something my husband and I have been dealing with since the passing of our Titus and Seluh. I figure it’s better for me if I get back to creating in order to deal with things. It was the best of times and the worst of times recording this record.
I wrote/co-wrote each of new album’s songs, which was produced by Parker Cason, at the “Creative Workshop” studio in Berry Hill (Nashville). The studio’s spirit was well captured in the opening scene of the 1976 cult classic documentary “Heartworn Highways.”
With Parker, we went against the grain of Nashville to let the songs of This Ol’ War breathe over the course of five months.
Well, now the time has come to release it and I need your help to cover the costs of reproducing the record on CD and vinyl. I also want to honor the memory of my beloved wolves. I figured the best way to do that is to give something back to an organization that helps wolves and wolfdogs. Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary is a non-profit facility that provides rescued wolves and wolfdogs with a loving home and a second chance at life. Since 2002 they have sustained on a small acreage in Texas, where they have opened their doors to thousands of guests each year, seeking to educate them about the animals that they love and care for. Research strongly supports the contributions of wolves in particular to the functioning and stability of the overall environment.
Therefore, I have set a fairly modest goal and I need you to help us reach it. Once we reach the goal, the Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary will receive 25% of that goal. Now it gets even better…. if we surpass that goal whatever we get on top of that I will be giving 50% to the Saint Francis Wolf Sanctuary.
So, let’s keep the memory of Titus and Seluh alive and raise awareness for wolves everywhere.

With love,
CoCo
