I remastered my first collection of songs back in January / February. Now I can live with them being fully released. No more cringing during play pack, thank God.
I wrote this a few days ago, watching the rush to reopen and how upsetting it’s made me.
I see the fall
Everyone out for themselves.
The sacrifice was far too weak.
The first lesson is not one to teach.
We’d rather learn the hard way.
We need higher numbers – more lives we couldn’t save.
We’d rather never see their face.
You poor, poor thing…
Yesterday is a losing game.
And it makes me sick inside.
I’ll be proven right.
They’re all out for themselves, bringing fires of hell.
Witnessing the fall,
I wish I was wrong.
How about some guitar for a change? This song I wrote many years ago, re-recorded with voice and my nylon string guitar. Music is a huge help in these times and all others. So, so grateful to still be here to create and enjoy this amazing thing.
Not really a new song, but new release. I have a ton of new music I’m in the middle of mixing. It will take a while, but so worth it when all comes together.
A freehand painting I did one afternoon.
Today is my birthday and for my 30th I wanted to release an album I know I challenged myself to write and could be proud of. I am not disappointed and feel at peace with the best work I’ve done so far.

Messy pastel…But I love what it does.
