This album is for those who are youthful and open-hearted and truly alive. It comes with compassion and encouragement, and, perhaps, even a little foresight. This album is also for those who are closed off from the world and damaged and depressed. It comes with empathy and respect, and, hopefully, with a reminder of the light we all carry within us, a light that renews and strengthens the source when given to others. I have worked on this project for a number of years, and I give it away now with a certain sense of contentment in having followed the true line of my own life through my music. I’m also giving it away with the hope that some of the inspiration and consolation and revelation that was gained in its making can be passed on to those who are truly listening wherever and whenever it’s played.
