I began this CD for my two sons. I was making out my will and pondering if I had anything of value or meaning to leave them when I died. I’ve never been a very materialistic person. There’s my guitar, the beautiful bronze sculpture of Buddha’s hand, my ruby ring. Then it dawned on me: my songs! That’s what I’d really like to give them. That would be giving them who I am. It was not until I got in the studio that I began to discover what was possible, and a professional recording was born.
The first and last two songs on this CD were more recent at the time of the recording. I was now fully in the stage attempting to express mystical experiences and spiritual insights musically. The other songs were written at an earlier time, and yet continued to delight me.
