Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Spiritualism starts within oneself and is nurtured and groomed by those closest to us, and yes, it neccesarily follows that this would start with family.
Music is truly the food of love, and it is a vessel, in which we can show our feelings, whatever they may be at the time.
Having served in the Royal Marines and latterly a freelance in Iraq and with the wealth of travel I have been fortunately given in my career, I have been exposed to the horrors and joys of life, losing and meeting new friends from all creeds and nationalities. My family, friends and these encounters of joy and sorrow have all played a part in influencing me during my 56 years in this mortal coil, I shall take them with me when I leave it, hopefully having shared my spiritual essence with many people and hopefully leaving a mark somewhere that may be found by kindred spirits who may also be able to touch hearts and minds.
I have played music from the age of six having been given a Honer button accordion. Got my first synth in 1984 a Roland Juno 60 (rememeber them?), proud owner and user of Roland D70, XP80, Yamaha Tyros 1 & 3. I believe synthesisers allows one to paint pictures with sound and they allow me to express my emotions (to myself mainly)
I into all music, all genres from classical through to psytrance etc.
Influencers: Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Kitaro together with Vivaldi, Beethoven and many other classical composers
Here's to my two lovely kids, Kirstie and Lauren and my only grandchild Freya Lily, and to the "final full measure", never give up on anything, including me. My love is a small mark on your hearts and souls, however, it will last for all eternity.
And to my mother, who encouraged me as a 6 year old child as she knelt in front of me and sang whilst I learned to play songs on the accordion by ear.
Blessed be the music that inspires, emotes and gives courage & happiness, sacred be the song that makes us cry.
