Talk about a voice that can take you places. Please do your soul a favour and enjoy this one while seated or lying down, eyes closed, and with the best quality earphones you have access to. I have to believe that even the weariest of souls will find this divine. Thank you Sara Bareilles. Read more


Music for Health: The Promise, by Tracy Chapman

I have long found that the best love songs are those with lyrics that I can feel for anyone I want to know forever and be reunited with in eternity after passing on from this world. "The Promise" by Tracy Chapman definitely fits this description for me. Read more

Days That We Die, By Loudon Wainwright III

I learned of this song from the movie, "This is 40." Just love how real the lyrics are.

Great Way to Learn How to Play the Guitar

It's hard to believe that more than 20 years have passed since my mom gave me a guitar for my birthday. She paid fifty dollars for it back then, and even got me started with a few lessons at a local music store.

I never spent enough time with my guitar to play in a band or anything like that - the most I've done is play for church youth groups throughout the years. But these days, strumming my guitar is one of the few activities that I have the luxury of enjoying once in a while.
