Music and side-hustles. On a rollercoaster ride through this LIFE towards Eternity. Sending messages across "Time."
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow! What a ride!" - Anonymous

Hi Everyone. Welcome to my spot on the web. These are very Strange Times we're living in, and I am coping through music, as always.
Synchronicities and spiritually transformative experiences are all around us to notice if we allow it. This is a time to be open and aware.
Everyone is needed at this time.
I am, and have always been an INDEPENDENT artist, and I am so grateful to those who support my music. I notice and appreciate your contributions SO very much, and I know some of you have been with me for a very long time.
I'm currently focusing on new music and releasing songs on bandcamp, in "real time" as they are written. It is a Soundtrack experiment and also an experiment in multidimensional communication. 2020-present.
While hard copies of my earlier catalog (2007 and before) sold out long ago, the music is still available digitally all over the web.
TYFL: Thank You For Listening. I leave you with a few quotes from some very interesting people that I know, who are just starting out life on this planet:
"Everything is made of Light!" - Z
"I love ALL the persons in the World!" - Z
"Don't be alarmed, he is made of rainbows!" - K
"Do YOU like Pink?" - M
"Do YOU like Buttons?" - M
(P.S. It's more important than ever to support your small and local businesses, run by REAL PEOPLE, not corporate powers. This is OUR WORLD.)
"I am part of the LIGHT, and it is the MUSIC..." - Nikola Tesla
