Let me first just say what I stand for. I feel music is very important. I feel blessed to have been able to make music with so many wonderful people in so many equally wonderful places. Music warms my heart when it aches and fills my soul in times of doubt. Music inspires me and fills my life with color and meaning. I also love nature and think, like music, its’ very important. I defend both of these things I love fiercely. Children come packaged with these loves, and I’ve been lucky to reclaim them. I defend music and nature so children in the future can enjoy both. We can only try, and never give up, to accomplish the things we think are important. I’m just doing the best that I can. I’m honored by anyone whose read, listened or smiled in my direction. I hope I can do the same for you.
