Of late I have been writing new material and enjoying the ride:) This has always been one of my favorite things to do!

Miracle is about the feeling that came up for me when I got overtaken with awe and humility at being able to help bring another life into the world. In this case, Iâ€™ve had the joy of being a father to my one and only little girl, Leila, who I still see every day as truly â€œa miracleâ€ from a higher power. I feel blessed a thousand times over!
So far she is healthy, happy, very smart, talented, and all of those things that parents like to advertise about their kid to others when they feel lucky and blessed. My daughter is all I could have ever wanted in the way of a child.
Itâ€™s funny, but before my daughter showed up me being the freedom loving, sometimes wild, non-commitment oriented music guy I was, I couldnâ€™t understand those kinds of people who talked about their kid(s) all the time. I would just nod, smile and think, â€œGet a life for yourself, why donâ€™t you?!â€ before tuning out most of what they had to say about Junior. But now Iâ€™m one of THEMâ€¦oh-noâ€¦
So bear with me and this piece of music that overflows with the feeling I carry for my kid. I suppose this spell, or whatever it is, has finally happened to me too!
One thing comes up that is nice; I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll ever get tired of her saying, â€œDaddy youâ€™re the best in the world; I love you so much!â€ Not a bad thing to have to live with I suppose; though weâ€™ll seriously have to see if that actually continues when she hits her teens:)
Anyway- this parenting stuff is certainly a life-changing event; eventually you get used to getting emotionally beat up a bit and a new somewhat scary kind of responsibility. Though all in all it’s like a friend of mine said just before I became a father about the little girl soon to come into my life, â€œThey fill up a huge empty space in your heart you never even knew you had.â€
Leila is truly my perfect Miracle.
The holidays have historically been a good time to write new music for me; we’ll see what the “Piano Santa” brings forth this year:)
If it’s something I think you will like you’ll certainly find it out there at some point..
Wearing a lot of hats these days; even though I’m being pulled in many different directions I’m wanting to do more live shows this year:)
Concerts certainly are fun, and being able to meet you folks personally is always a blessing..
Maybe I’ll try and clone myself!
I’m having fun of late finding the right notes for my latest music efforts. It’s always a challenge to be constantly trying to do your best work, but I enjoy that part my profession.
Sometimes the journey is as interesting as the destination:)
