My Journey With Nature

MY MUSIC

Description

I wrote this song a while back about a trip my wife and I took down in the islands several years ago. We went to what I call the lower Caribbean Islands, The Lesser Antilles. It was a sailing vacation and the song is called. Are you ready for this? “Down in the Islands.” It’s got some interesting lyrics and quite a catchy tune. Very pleasant. The kind that sticks in your head – in a good way. You may find yourself humming it from time to time to give your mind a little break from the hustle and bustle we find ourselves in during the day. Give it a listen, see what you think. All of the “pictures” painted in the song are real. When we first boarded the sail boat there was someone at the dock selling breadfruit. We laughed with the laughing gulls, and watched the dolphins play. We swam with the turtles in Tobago Cay. It was a very peaceful feeling to just float alongside the turtles. They certainly didn’t mind us being a part of their world at all. We walked on the beach after dinner one evening. It was a very clear night. The moonlight shone brightly on the bay and as we walked I looked up and saw the southern cross for the first time. It truly took our breaths away. It’s very bright and vivid. And we were definitely on island time the whole time we were there. Just a very relaxing trip full of beautiful memories. A short time after we returned to our real lives I started working on a new tune on the guitar. I do this from time to time and after a couple of days of this I realized that it could be a song for my wife about our trip to the islands. And so it is.

I wrote this lullaby for my Grand Daughter when she was around two years old. It started with a kind of unusual tune I was working out on my guitar. To my surprise after a few days of working on the tune I thought it could be a lullaby for Miranda. I added some words and when I did, I figured out the second part of the lullaby with the words first and then the music. It has a soothing tone and helped her to end her day. Just “go to sleep.” And it gives her a present so to speak. The promise of a new day. “Full of joy and wonder.” Something to look forward to.

ADDICTS ANTHEM

I was talking with a friend one afternoon some time back and after I hung up, I was thinking they really needed to pull it together.  They were dealing with an addiction problem.  I thought they can use some help and it occurred to me that I can help but ultimately, it’s up to them.  That’s when the song came to me.  I wrote the words down in about a half an hour and added the music, (guitar chords), a couple of days later. My hope is that the song can be helpful to anyone trying to overcome a serious problem in life.
