Notes

LIBERATION
This is a dance of triumph and survival.

RIVER
Being in or near water is very enjoyable for me. Here I attempted to portray the many varied moods of a river.

RONDO
This piece reflects my love and appreciation for classical music.

JESTER IN GREEN
Listen to the funny little frog hop about as he plays "the jester." The refrain literally jumped out of a dream.

SKIPPING ON THE WIND
Frustrated, I banged out this piece after losing out on a job opportunity. As I calmed, it sounded more like skipping than telling this person to "go fly a kite." As I let go of my anger, I realized how great it felt to be free of it ...to fly free on the wind.

FAITHFUL SHADOW
I felt helpless as I watched my husband retire his big black German shepherd, "Andy." Although Phil has a new dog, and Andy is happily retired in his new home, I explored the part in each of them, which still yearns for the bond they once shared.

DANCING ON AIRE
This song was conceived on one of those days where it just felt great to be alive. I found myself laughing and smiling for no particular reason and reveled in the moment.

BITTERSWEET GOOD-BYE
My in-laws had stayed with us for three days, and it was time for their departure. They wanted to hear one final song before leaving, and this piece didn't have a title... until that evening.

WONDROUS JOURNEY
This is a look at the past. Although some of the events are sad, it is affirming to see the lessons I have learned.

SIMPLE THINGS
I composed this soon after my husband Phil found his current job. I felt gratitude for the simple things which were luxuries on a fixed income... a new CD, a bottle of perfume or even a can of pop.

Golden
I originally wrote a very maudlin sounding song for my Seeing eye Dog® Tanner, using his nickname, "Golden Boy." When composing this piece however, I tried to keep all of the emotion, yet adding beauty and dignity. These elements comprise who Tanner really is for me.
