Confessions of a Social Media Flunkie
"I cryed a lot with this song when I had a dream with my grampa that passed away some years ago. This song was playing as I was sleeping. It seemed like angels was playing this touching song then I remembered my grampa I cryed a lot . Suddenly I woke up with tears in my eyes. ...thanks u for the touching melodies. Blessings from Bolivia."
This comment from a YouTube fan for a video from my album SPIRITUS. I was so touched by this person's unabashed emotions and honesty. It brought into focus the primary reason that I make music -- to touch others and help to heal and transform consciousness.
Okay, so I'm one of those people who "gets" things pretty easily - I picked up music as a little kid by walking up to a piano and just playing away the songs I had been humming from the radio. I really never "applied myself" (as my teachers and parents described it) to my studies. Learning came easily, and as soon as I discovered I could wait until the last minute to turn in the assignment or study for the exam and still get a respectable grade, that was my modus operandi. I could run fast, jump high, swim long and hit the ball as far as anyone.
The road to here.....
