Objective:  This newsletter came out of my experiences dealing in a new culture and a new history plus my experiences in the USA and Canada. The purpose of the newsletter is to provoke serious thought about musical art.  What is it? Where should it be going?  In addition, what is going on in China?  I write about my personal experiences and my thoughts about them. My music is here.  Am I really who I say I am.  The proof is here just listening. http://greghenrywaters.com/mp3 104 Songs to listen to!

 

So much has happened in the last month moving back to New York City. I cannot tell you all about it because it is too personal. But with 9/11 here in New York and the memorial service, cleaning the apartment, arranging my life again here. Trying to find some friends has been kind of trying, but I am home and happy to be here.

 

Shenzhen, I will always remember the flowers. It is your biggest asset. I talk to my friends here about my experiences there and it is surprising that most of them know a lot about China and the business ethics there. Some of the personal differences for me are water pressure, hot water, quality of water, internet service, cooking stove and food. These were the things I missed most about my apartment in New York. I hope soon I can find some music work in a coffee bar and create some more music like I did in Shenzhen.

 

Of course the music in New York is tremendous there is so much of it and you go into an average music store and they have so many instruments and books and maybe even someone who knows something. My taste has changed in music. I have been listening to a lot of jazz on the radio and I must say I do not like much of it. I do not know where I am at now with music. I have started to practice about a week ago. I just mostly stay in my neighborhood for now I do not go to Manhattan yet. Maybe I will soon however now it is too soon.

 

The USA is changing now with 9/11. I hope we will grow up as a nation and really become the nation we should be and not the nation of the greedy and stupid. I hope we soon give up this idea of an immigrant nation and close our borders for a while and concentrate on our nation. Too many people just want to use the USA and not be apart of it or friends with it. We as a nation must now change our attitude and become a nation of nations. Having lived in three other nations I know more about what this nation should be. I think it is good to travel and see what is going on in other places. I must say. The USA is the best even though sometimes it seems it is the worst.

 

I hope you can enjoy this piece about Bush and immigration here in the states. Two big problems we have here.

 

Thanks and Always Greg Henry Waters
