- Who? Me??? I am a songwriter. I am fortunate enough to be able to sing most of them as well. LOL. Well, some would scrunch there faces when I open up, but most folks like the songs well enough to forgive my less than stellar voicing. Writing songs and stories brings me great joy. If I get a major hit, I'd feel no differently about my writing as I do now, with my local following. I think that is the trick to a truly happy life. Being satisfied with the wonderful gifts that you have. Any thing else after those, well that's the gravy! Just remember, Food well cooked and seasoned can taste great without the gravy! But the best gravy in the world can't cover up a foul tasting portion! So, my philosophy is to try to be good at all that I do, and at the end of the day, feel my life is complete because I've lived the life I set out to have!
