"And the music breathed into the life, before the life breathed into the music, and from that day on, the notes just danced..." The Notes He Didn't Play
I carried it around for many years as a heavy stone devoid of life. Now, I finally allow for a manifestation of sorts... musically. Music theory eludes me to the point of driving me mad... but I'm started to get it more and more...
I started writing songs about 4 years ago. As the songs came, so came a story. The story is called "The Notes He Didn't Play" ... "The lights of a tapered hillside trickle into the Sound like the notes of a song fading, into the foothills of a giant; waiting in line to make their ascent, as they reflect their way across the bay into another neighborhood..."
