I was listening to a song by Ryan Adams the other evening during one of our nightly thunderstorms. “When The Stars Go Blue” has always been a favorite of mine. It’s been covered by so many people but the original is the one I love. That song led to “Memories Of You” and the list
It started with a song… literally it did! This blog, the impetus to write, and the wonderful memory of a dear friend, all started with a song almost a year ago. So, I thought I’d take the time to give you an update as to how my dear friend Kyle’s family has survived their first
It started with a song…. it generally does you see.

It started with a song… actually it really did so many months ago. Two people came into my life and shared theirs with me. It is difficult to comprehend in this world of Social Media that the bonds of friendship can overcome the virtual unreality of the world we now live in. But it does.
It started with a song… yes I know, it usually does! This isn’t about a particular song but many I’ve learned to love. It’s mainly about me and my piano, a love affair that started oh so many years ago. I remember I was a very little girl and begged my daddy & mummy for
