In the words of

There are people in this world who were given the gift of crafting words. I am not one of them. Just like everything else in life, words take practice! (at least for me)

So I will use this space for that practice, and for sharing other tidbits that I find interesting and think you might too.

But sometimes someone says something that I just can't say better myself.  In which case, I will let others do the talking for me.

I recently came across a quote by E.T.A. Hoffman where he so eloquently described why I am a musician -

"Music discloses to man... a world in which he leaves behind him all definite feelings to surrender himself to an inexpressible longing."

In other words, music is my happy place.
