Hi, Jim, How do you do this.....evoke such pure emotive energy with a tender touch on the keys....heartstrings you pull in all of us? If all the tears of joy everyone cries while embracing your sweet music were to be put all together, it would be a pretty nice pool we could swim in! As it is, we float on the joyous current and feel reborn time and time again. Thank you for this, my friend. In the Spirit that holds us all.
