Oso Wallman says:

wow, an entire year has passed since i watched this first. I still cruise
youtube looking for the latest puddles posting and see how much has
happened in a year. This group PMJ and Puddles came at a very good time in
my life and gave lift to a tough time. Puddles gave me a place to put my
sad and also an avenue to see the beauty of that important and necessary
emotion. Instead of dwelling on the sad i see how transformation can come
through perseverance and process and having the sound of Big Mikes voice
gives power to these actions. Thank you Puddles, Scott and all the
musicians that made this happen. 


Que a gente saiba reconhecer o valor da companhia do outro. …. E espero
que todo mundo possa encontrar o amor da sua vida !!!!!!
