When I write music, I ask for inner guidance. Each song is a gift given to me that I in turn share with you. I’m grateful to the source of divine love for the opportunity to be an instrument and guardian of these songs. This CD was truly an act of love, and I am thrilled to offer it to the world.
Thanks to everyone who was part of this project in any way – talented musicians, financial and emotional supporters, creative artists, friends who offered inspiration and those who requested custom songs. You helped make this CD a reality!
To my partner in life, Sheila, thank you for filling my days and my heart with love, light, laughter and music. To my dear friends, thank you for coloring my world in unbelievable ways. I am ever grateful!
