May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~Irish Blessing 

 

 

 

 

A dream I've had for a while has become real….

My own website. Creating music.

And I am very excited to share it with you. 

My music has been on the internet for a few years now

in many different music websites

and it is nice to have it all together in one place.

A warm & hearty greeting to each & every visitor to my

new home away from home on the internet!!

 

 

 

 

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
~Robert Frost, "Blue-Butterfly Day" 

 

 

 MusicPlayer 1 - most recent music

 

and a variety of my other works.

 

 

 

 

Butterflies are self propelled flowers.  ~R.A. Heinlein 

 

 

Music Player 2 is my Reverbnation player

 

with more music for your listening pleasure.

 

 

 

 

 

The caterpillar does all the work

but the butterfly gets all the publicity.

  ~Attributed to George Carlin 

 

This is the place where the action will be

as far as placing my new music,

posting photos

and creating blogs.

I've lots of ideas

& I am looking forward to sharing

it all with you!

                   

 

If you find yourself daydreaming, meditating, dancing,

wondering, inspired while listening to my music

Then I've done a good job of it.

If you find yourself with a tear in your eye,

or a smile on your face

or with hopeful thoughts,

are comforted or gladdened

Then you know you are real

because you can still feel

& your dreams can come true too!

Then I've done a good job of it.
