Welcome to an exploration of my life in the arts. For years I’ve balanced my soul and sanity on a
three-legged stool: Art, Music and Relationship. My quest for balance in these areas has convinced me
that each of them is simply its own deep dialect of the universal language of Spirit. Each of us, amateur
and professional alike is called to become fluent in voicing our joys, our fears and our aspirations.
As Max Eastman reminds us, “the defining function of the artist is to cherish consciousness.”
