As I returned from my maiden voyage to┬áthe land of Britain full of awe, unspeakable joy and deep reservoirs of inspiration, slowly the music started to speak. From the high craggy cliffs where the ruins of Tintagel castle lay overlooking the dark waters off Cornwall’s shore, to the ancient majestic ruins of Glastonbury Abbey and the dark mysteries of the Tower of London, the swirling maze of the city’s streets and the magic of the standing stones on Salisbury Plain, I swam deep in the waters of imagination.

Shortly after returning home and embarking on creating “At the Edge of the Cornish Sea,” I soon shared with the world dark grief and immense sadness as the two towers crumbled to the earth creating its deep grave of shattered lives and dreams. What once seemed important became insignificant against the dark clouds of sorrow.

Over the long months of searching for meaning and reasons to keep faith alive in the simple and profound moments in our lives, the realms of purpose slowly unfolded and once again music quietly spoke through the silence to deliver its unworldly sense of beauty and hope. Remembering what an honor it is to be here in this world and cherishing the mystery of our lives humbly opened once again a door and gave me courage to dream.
