I am working on my “Song of of Healing and Hope” course for Insight Timer. This is a link to the songs for my course: Insight Timer – Songs of Healing and Hope Medleys.
Every lesson for my course incorporates musical clips: old arrangements, guitar mixes and piano solos. I have hire an arranger to help me create the piano clips and it’s fun. We do two different clips; one is more ambient and the other is faithful to my song’s melody. Each lesson ends with a piano solo melody clip.
Below is a medley of the melody piano clips for the first five lessons. Thank you for stopping by and I pray for everyone to emerge from this dark time with their health intact. The losses are staggering and I feel the collective weight of grief. It is horrifying to think about.
My life’s passion and energy has been devoted to maintaining hope of healing. I will continue on my path. Stay safe and sending my love.

I caught a terrible chest cold in early December and am still coughing. I would say I’ve been concentrating on healing for many months now. My life is calm and peaceful. I record guitar songs and work on piano additions to them. I have a few that i am simply enjoying recently. Below are new guitar recordings for my songs “Someone to Love You” and “How We Don’t Care.”
I went with my daughter to Huntington library last week. It was simply a gorgeous day and I appreciated that I could walk again!

I recently released three new meditation tracks on Insight Timer. The first one is named “Healing Guitar Dreams” and the image above is the cover for this track. It consists of a solo guitar medley of three of my previously released songs: Healing Song, Waterfall Dreams and Farewell.
The other two meditation tracks are a medley of ten of my songs. One is with vocals and the other is guitar and piano. My Insight Timer page link shares more about these medleys: Songs of Wonder – Vocal Medley & Guitar/Piano Medley
(Below are the covers for the medleys, which are illustrations of mine.
I am elated to have finished recording the last of my 52 acoustic songs
My newest project is one that I am very excited about. I have been enjoying a slightly different process of creating meditation tracks, which began with my new version of “Healing Song.” Instead of recording my guitar and adding in piano, I am doing the reverse. I had my arranger, Devin, create a lovely piano solo for my track “Farewell Love Song” and I am going to record a new guitar track that complements it. This process is definitely different for me and a lot of fun. I share a brief excerpt of the piano solo below, which is quite beautiful:
Thank you for checking out my music. It continues to fuel my joy and helps me greatly as I am healing from a broken ankle. I celebrated Thanksgiving with extreme gratefulness for all my blessings!

It has been a month now since I’ve been able to walk again. I recently celebrated my 60th birthday and it was a very joyful occasion of being surrounded by my dearest friends.
I have continued to forge ahead with new meditation tracks for Insight Timer. Recently I released a new version of an earlier track named “Healing Song.” I had a beautiful intro and outtro added, courtesy of my piano arranger, Devin. His talent is enormous and made my song amazing. I created a shorter version of my track to share as an audio excerpt:
I am getting close to finishing my last acoustic song. I create guitar, vocal and piano duet versions for almost every one of my songs.
I share my most recent one named “Only Tears.” Below is the guitar mix, a vocal mix, and guitar/piano mix for this song.
