Furthermore to know, that in this present day, we Artists and Musicians are expected to give away our music for free, is appalling, and breaks my heart into pieces…
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? I can’t actually say when I was happiest, because I am always happy when I am creating new music and it is flowing!

This is good!” I am forever unfolding fragments of light and love, so I don’t have a “happiest moment in my work”.
If I could, what would I change about myself? I would not want to change anything about myself. My journey in this life is to uncover and discover the best of me and I am forever in discovery of that. I enjoy who I am and every thing that makes me – ME I am comfortable with in my own skin…
