Music is the flower of feeling; and the kindler of memories; it has the gentle capacity to transport you away to visit another place and another meaningful time...
It is recognized that music can have the power to soothe and uplift. When music is orchestrated and arranged through the sensitivity that comes from within a loving and receptive spirit; I believe it becomes a potent but gentle voice that can inspire peace and comfort to a weary and disquieted heart - and uplift a burdened spirit.
It pleases me especially, to hear from folk who have found my music to be a source of calm and peacefulness; because I realize that they are in tune with what I strive to express through my music.
The Legend of Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge...
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor: those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They enjoy their time together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body quivers.
Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster...
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart...
...then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.
The music playing is the Rainbow Bridge composition.
