Writing music has been part of my life for the last 30 years and I cannot imagine how life would have been without it.
I have been able to use my writing as a way of dealing with all the ups and downs that life presents and (thank you God!) I continue to do so.
It has kept me humorous, hopefully kept my brain in gear and I am thoroughly enjoying my composing life (although sometimes on a bad day I feel as if I am decomposing!)
I would recommend writing music to anyone out there – have a go at expressing yourself through the power of composition at any level, as it is great therapy.
Recently, I’ve had to face some health issues and I am currently undergoing a course of radiotherapy for my Lymphoma which rises up every few years or.
Thankfully, in a few days time, a little friend is coming into my life in the form of a puppy. She’s called Charley and I’m so excited!
I know she will also help me to overcome my cancer and the combination of music and puppy will be a wonderful way to go forwards. I am confident that it will be cured very soon and I will be back to normal (whatever that is!)
With all this in mind, I would like to share with you a piece I wrote several years ago when I was going through another difficult health period.
Thanks to the music, I never lost focus and always hoped and prayed that everything would work out – and it did, with more amazing results than I could have possibly hoped for.
Building Bridges from “After Hours 4“ (Faber music) is my musical attempt at putting everything back together again.
If you are facing your own personal challenges at the moment, keep believing and listening!
Music is a Great Healer
