Collaborations, Songs and Messages 

My sweet Miri has done it again….added her musical talents to one of my poems…both the melody and vocals are created by Miri.  If that’s not exciting enough, Rob, from For friends without borders gave it that magic touch of added instrumentation…listen you’ll hear the strings and that hauntingly beautiful flute….I cannot even begin to express my thanks to both Miri and Rob and I certainly cannot contain my excitement over another song!!!  We do have plans to make a CD, until then please continue to enjoy our creations here, thank you.  xo

    • It was sooo much fun…oh your touch put it over the top and made it the magical sounding song it now is!! Oh yay we do too look forward to more and we are already onto the next one!! We’ve decided to put this on YouTube with pictures and lyrics as soon as I figure out how…do you mind if I mention your name for credit purposes? If you want your full name mentioned you can email it to me…if Rob S. is sufficient then we’ll leave it at that. Thanks again xo
