There are days when the lyrics speak for me
and moments when music is a kiss,
but the best thing in life is when both come alive
and for this my life is a gift.
When I was a little girl my Mother focused on two things, education and music. She knew how important both of these things would be to my life and my future. I remember not really wanting to take piano lessons. I think every musician has been through those times when the traditional lessons didn’t make as much sense as the creation of art. Now that I am a little older I realize that the discipline was very important to the overall outcome of my character. Now, all these years later, I am so grateful that my Mother knew the importance of developing my artistic abilities as well as my traditional education. I have the freedom to create because my talents were developed and nurtured. That’s one gift that just keeps giving to me every moment that I use it.
