Recently, Dawn and Jon Pousette-Dart were interviewed for an article for the Columbia Journal called, “Get Real: More Than the Title of a Song.” Written by Carla Stockton, who writes a semi-weekly piece about life in Manhattan for the Columbia University publication, “Catch and Release.” it features some great information on all of Dawn and Jon’s history, as well as new projects that are on the way.

As a fully licensed sightseeing guide, she has a particular intimacy with the area and is never reluctant to share it with others. Carla’s semi-weekly column will discuss people, places and events in and around Manhattan. Follow her here.

Due to the great interest in our music video for the song “Who I Am” on the subject of Alzheimer’s we have set up a way for folks to make donations towards the completion of our feature length documentary on the same topic. In the absence of any cause or cure breakthroughs to date, in this doc we are concentrating on practical ways for caregivers to cope and successfully stay connected as best as possible with their loved ones affected by this disease in their long and often lonely journey. In addition, we will empower caregivers with ways to stay healthy and strong in order to deal both with the incredible burden of caregiving and with the prevention of Alzheimer’s in their own bodies.

I’m doing the Little Red Lighthouse 5.86 mile swim Saturday September 26th in the Hudson River for FUN !!!? …but also as a joint fundraiser for both:
1. the production of our upcoming Alzheimer’s documentary, “Forget Me Not”. Here’s a song from the doc that Jon Pousette-Dart and I wrote with Jamie Kyle for you to check out while you’re here! (click “Listen-Who I Am” link way at the top of the page above the banner) It’s getting great reviews!
2. for the Manhattan Island Foundation (Founded as a 501c3 in 1993, the Manhattan Island Foundation (MIF) organizes the swim events to help further its goals of supporting and expanding public Learn-to-Swim programs throughout New York City, particularly those that serve at-risk youth, as well as raising awareness of the waters that surround New York by supporting efforts to clean and protect them.)
