Time Line

Every life tells a story. Woven through the passages of time. Secrets we hide or places we dream to be are all poured through the vessel of time to reveal the truth about us. What we really believe, who we really are. Our sins that find us time and time again. Poured through our story washing in and through us to reveal our real truth. To reveal truth itself. For anything based on a lie will not...

Good evening! As this day is settling in and I too, I want to let you know that I have ridden a wave and found it full of new shores!! As my journey continues, and rounds a corner all full of smog and danger I have discovered that a journey can be full of surprises! What could be a cliff hanger experience can also become an exhilarating opportunity to try ones wings out! This is where you find...

Every Little Moment

Good morning to YOU! I hope this day finds you well! Today it is beautifully sunny outside and I was able to take my coffee and just drink it all in..the atmophere and the coffee!!  This walk of life has its ups and downs..I find the emotions of life have times of fragility. I think at those times its good to be kind to yourself. Ride it out. What seems to be so ominous today becomes something...

#Anxiety The Best of Zest Vol. 1

Good afternoon! I hope this day finds you well. It has been hot here but nothing a nice cold ice pack can't solve..! As I work on my new music I have been reflecting back to the time I wrote some of my earlier tunes. I guess we write from our journey..where we are at. I feel an artist who lets themselves learn at times of failure, loss, sadness and fear can then create something for others. I...

New Photo’s New Music!

Good beautiful afternoon! We are in the midst of making music! Just thought I would take a break and say Hello to Awesome YOU! Yesterday we went for a ride to try to find a spot to take a few photos..! We ended up on a gravelly road...(me car..me car...) but finally got back onto some great pavement and wandered off to a road never travelled before only to discover some really beautiful scenery...

#Clearvision The Best of Zest Vol. I

Hello! Good afternoon! As I look out onto a clouded view of the sky I am thinking how easy it is to lose one's vision;  perspective in things. How easily we can alter our perspective from happy to sad..! When I wrote Clearvision, I was in University. I was working very hard to move forward and forget a very troubled time I had just come through. I think I found a piano somewhere and just sat...

PS. Baby Blue!

After I wrote the song Baby Blue, the people who were experiencing some troubles had a listening ear,  and through understanding and some changes they made a great move forward and are really working together and have become so much the stronger for it all.  Crisis doesn't always mean the end but can become the beginning of good things to come, a change in the right direction. Life has ways of...

Baby Blue!

Good beautiful evening! I want you to know that we have uploaded an MP3 of one of my new tunes:-) It is called " Baby Blue". I wanted to be able to share it with you. We will make a video for it soon. This song came to me as I was confronted with a very difficult life crisis. Not my own but someone I love dearly. Of course songwriters bring out their pain or joy by music. I played the piano and...

Maple in Flavour

...and the magnificence of the tree, grew steadily, its leaves forming new and graceful branches. One looked around the green emerging beauty and wondered at its sculpture and story. It's sameness yet newness emerging with the sense and comfort that only comes through times own measure.

Good beautiful evening! I hope your day went really well! I have to say it's a really beautiful time of year and all of the sunshine leaves you smiling! Today I was in town working on a project when we ran into our former drummer of The Best of Zest vol. 1&2. We haven't seen much of each other lately. Life gets like that and band members have seen a great deal of one another for a long period...

On the Verge

Good afternoon! As I anticipate all these great ideas coming to bloom I know that the ground work is just that...work! Then the magic happens! I realize on my journey that it is the journey that is important. To find the good in each day and relish it. To not look back but keep on moving forwards;  eventually it all makes sense. It all has a rhythm and reason and fits into the Universal puzzle...

Happy MOther’s Day!!

I remember her, busy in the kitchen or busy at her desk working..or spending time with my Dad,..or fighting a headache. My Mom. Sensitive, behind the scenes artist. My Mom wrote music and poetry and sang so beautifully but who knew? She was too nervous to sing in front of a crowd, too sensitive for that. But my Mom is brilliant and full of wisdom. Thank YOU MOM for the music you have passed onto...

A Musical Evening!

Good evening to you! I just finished working on music with an artist that is very talented. It is interesting how paths cross and meet and the storms inbetween..Like a paper airplane flying in the wind that meets an undercurrent or two. There is definitely a mystery to music. My friend has a story, and I hope that his pages are now written in the black not red. The very thing he loved almost...

They made an impression

There they were, he with his limp and her with her speech troubles and crooked grin. Simple people, sometimes he pushed her in her wheel chair, sometimes she walked with a difficulty. There they were, always one with the other. Grey hair speckled  the tops of their heads like a crown on top jeweling two hearty grins. He had never learned to read or write, he told me, he used his memory, came...

#By The Fire #10 Zorobabel

I came about writing By the Fire at a time when my world was turned upside down and totally uncertain. It was a time of pain and struggle. That's when you get songs like this. They come to you like a source of comfort, like a moment from the Divine. I knew that in spite of my personal world events that I was "taken care of". That inner peace and comfort that comes to us when all else is uncertain...

Happy Easter!

Good day to You! As Easter Weekend sets into motion I am full of joy really. I think of Easter as a time where faith is realized and so too in my own journey as I have learned to really stretch my self in faith and take a "flying leap"...faith then begins to emerge into reality. It's a wonder and a wonderful thing really. To break past the mediocre and reach into the heavens and pull out a star!...

New Growth Green

Good morning! Today is one of those days that I have discovered a mindset. An attitude adjustment that is so important as journey's go. Sometimes the life we love is just blooming into place. This can require work that is not what we love to do, but is necessary and I am learning to appreciate it all. Not just the gifts that call me constantly but the rocky road that makes me into a better human...

Springtime’s Muddy Waters:-)

Good afternoon. Today I have been reflecting on small sphere's like the puddles on the road that wash away the muddy soil, where new life begins...To larger spheres' and how we are all so interdependent upon each other to some point. How we all feel emotions when an event takes place. This morning at my Sunday gig, a young man with a slender build was sitting quietly in his chair. I remembered...

Good morning! As the ocean; so seem we... So many different currents and energetic waves move and crash to form a rough weathered sea, but I know that we all have a ship to sail!

So we ride the wave and find the exhilaration in the...

Good evening! I just wanted to say a quick HELLO! to YOU!  Also how much fun I have had creating film score samples.   And so there are many more creations we are planning to begin.

But I'll tell you...

To Garden Paths

I walked along and found a path Not without rocks and curved hills turns A road that leads me through the flowers Through toil and storm Through midnight hours I watched two madman shovel strong To cause a hole to bury its song For what?

Good morning to YOU! I hope you are well and looking forward to this day! I know that I am as we are going to be creating today!

It is an interesting thought anywho! :-) Winter is gently serenading me with light snowflakes floating but...

#Art and it’s ever Presence

Good afternoon:-) As I start very soon into the studio where we are mixing down more samples for Film, I am thoughtful of the value of what we as artists do. Live in sacrifice and time given to express to you a value, for this time and beyond. To perhaps mirror the soul's cry or the beauty overlooked. Art weaved in and through a culture in any time in history. Like thread for the making of the...

Springtimes Kiss!

Step in it’s Fine!

As this day is winding down I am reflecting on my journey this far. It's that balancing act of new territory and faith.

Tiny Yellow Seed

Good afternoon! I hope you are very well! I have lately been thinking of the whole idea of belief.  How it affects our whole way of life. As we are launching some new ventures I am realizing that the faith one has is actually the ultimate. It was said to me, that the journey is secondary to the faith on the way. Journey's are full of challenges and yet, faith holds its own. More than holds its...

Big Great Machine

What was he doing? We all looked and stared. A crowd around in a sun dazed glare. Way up! Way up! In the clouds somewhere, he balanced almost in thin cool air! A little boy he could not see?

Balanced almost in the thin, cool...

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...

I think we all like to share in the music sometimes. I played my guitar and changed the...

A Bird’s Broken Wing

Good afternoon:-) I am reflecting today, as yesterday was full of wonderful things and also some very sad interactions. I know that for many the journey is a place that is just plain hard, full of struggle and unhappiness. When I listen to people pour out their struggles I am hurting with them in their pain. Sometimes our pain is self-induced. For example, I can see how some problems in say, a...

How it all ties together..maybe we are just one big Song!  It has been shown that fear...

Through Misty Morn

A thick fog laid low like a carpet of blur, hanging as if unsure of its next move. One's eyes squint to focus through the trees raised hands. Vision blurred from the atmospheric bloom.

Where ever I find myself,  it feels ...
