The Green Beans in the Dilly Jar

One summer I laid a garden down, all nice and in a straight row. I put the seeds into the ground and labeled the vegetables and waited. The season ran its course and all of my beautiful work had created many new and fresh items to eat. "Great" I thought and began to harvest. "This time", I said to myself, "I want to try to make Dilly beans and can them in a jar." And so, I did. Being creative I...

Before the Bells!

Good morning! Well last night, singing Christmas carols was a great deal of fun! Performing is always full of dynamics that studio work doesn't carry! In the studio you have control of the sound ext where performing may add new dynamics. When I started to sing, everyone started singing with me! It was great! I think we all like to share in the music sometimes. I played my guitar and changed the...

Sometimes our pain is self-induced. For example, I can see how some problems in say, a...

On the Wings of the Wind

Good Frosty Morning to You! The change in Seasons is here!  I feel inspired today as I get to work on my tunes and also feel like writing a few more!  I feel that life is a series of adventures and each one has its value. Some for learning, some for preparation and most of all for sharing what we have the privilege of creating. :-)  Never a day of waste, each one with purpose of its own....

Poppies!

Good morning! Before I head into the studio to work on my music, I just wanted to say Happy Remembrance Day and Thank YOU to the BRAVE!  Also just a note about my tune Poppies I wrote. When I wrote it , it had a very different tempo than what you can hear recorded. It was slower than how I wrote it. The producer at the time chose to change the tune a bit. I never really loved the change but went...

Love those Vibrations!

Good afternoon! As I have been working on my music and also playing locally, I have been instructed on the idea of vibrations and music, well, vibrations and all things really. It is very fascinating and as a music maker, it reminds me of how incredible we are and how we function in tune with the Universe. How it all ties together..maybe we are just one big Song!  It has been shown that fear...

Speck

Tides of blue, Rage high and strong To wipe the sand drops from their song Large and heavy move to rhythm Covering gold flecks without care.
