This is a collection of memoirs centering around more than twenty songs I have written from 1975 onward. I never thought I would write lyrics or develop tunes since I neither read nor write musical notes. However as far back as I can remember I have loved to sing; it was one place I felt peace and calm in my life.
Most of these songs came at momentous times in my life- exhilarating and excruciating times. The existence of each song feels like a gift from God, springing spontaneously from my heart and almost all while in communion with God.
St. Augustine said, “To sing is to pray twice.”
I have added spiritual experiences and snippets of my life in chronological order along with the songs. I hope that these will add more clarification to this sharing.
I briefly mention my youth and childhood in these memoirs, but I will go into more detail in another collection.
