Last week I began recording my new instrumental late at night. The serenity of recording at 4 a.m. is amazing. It is also hard work and sometimes my hand becomes numb. I have to stop and shake it out for a few minutes because I can’t feel it. Continue reading

I love telling my story through pictures and words. In my wildest dreams, I never imagined I would be singing and playing my guitar again – let alone creating recordings in a home studio.
Thank you for allowing me to share my passion and joy with you! Continue reading

YOUR SWEET SMILE

The feelings that inspired me to write my most recent song “Someone To Love You,” continue to reverberate throughout my life. The title of this post is from that song. I haven’t written anything of a personal nature in awhile, and will tread lightly here because I do want to share about my current life. I have to balance my honesty without revealing too many personal details that might upset my children. Continue reading

ONE DAY I’LL BE GONE

I loved what a friend of mine said about my new song. He said, “I think it’s great how you can write about something that many people think about, but are afraid to say.” Continue reading

TAKE ME AWAY – PART 1

It’s hard for me to understand how I am such a passionate songwriter when I seldom consciously choose to write a song. I cannot compose a new song by simply playing my guitar and wishing for it to appear. A song unfolds for me, and it usually happens at a time when I’m very discouraged. It all starts with a magical moment. Continue reading
