New Year, new you? Not new, but there is the art of possibilities…

As a child of the 60's, music has always been a part of my life.

I believe every November/December offers us many signs and events to help us pause and reflect upon the year, our life and of our family and friends. It’s a time to give thanks, rejoice in our blessings, offer our love and symbols of love, and reflect on what we've done right and what we could do better.
