My purpose here is to share a list of my favorite songs, the ones I have loved and am learning to play and the ones I am beginning to write.


 My newest love is the piano, a Yamaha Clavinova baby grand. I also tinker with harmonica, concertina, ukulele and guitar. Unfortunately I cannot sing. So the piano does it best.

 Of the songs I have written and am writing, one is a movie theme for the soundtrack of a movie that has not yet been made - Love and Glory. The movie would be based on an historic fictional novel that has been written - Hanna's Promise, A Story of Grace and Hope. I wrote it as my second novel in 2016.
