I was reflecting on how music has been a gift to me. At times I think of it as a language that enables me to express myself in a deeper way than I can with words. Many things in life are of interest to me and I have a natural curiosity about them. There are times when I am having a discussion with someone about life and I am told, "You should write a book". My reply is always the same, "All of this is in my music". I feel a deep happiness when people tell me they understand.
