“…the whole point of Queen was to be original.”… Freddie Mercury.

Be original, indeed! One thing I always say to people is to be YOUnique! And Pear Tree’s “Learn & Listen” series, certainly is unique. Last month I had the honor of working with three-time Grammy Award winner, and friend, Rob Fusari. Kim Christian at the Kinnelon Library, Kinnelon, New Jersey, hosted our “Life & Music of Freddie Mercury” from the Learn & Listen series.

I am so thankful to Rob Fusari (https://www.robfusari.com/), Richard Timberlake (http://timberlakephotos.com/), and Jayne DiGregorio (https://www.jaynedigregorio.com/) all for playing such a great role in making the series and documentary happen!

And I look forward to working with Rob again later this year when we return to the Kinnelon Library for “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: A Celebration of Elton John’s Last Tour.”

This month, Pear Tree is bringing back the “WIN.” March and April wins will be related to money. March win will be a beautiful lucky coin purse; April win will be a wallet! Paying it forward so you can attract prosperity!

To WIN this month, send an email with the word “WIN” in the subject line; and answer this question: What was the whole point of Queen, according to Freddie Mercury

Aside from the Learn & Listen series, Pear Tree is still going strong on a part-time basis with other lectures, book signings, and ghost writing/book editing.

Lately I’ve been helping a client edit her Christian blog, which is extremely inspiring. Perhaps I can help you too?
