Music has been a therapy for me over the past 50 plus years, not only has it been an inspiration and source of respite, but also has allowed me freedom of emotional expression words could not.
But I have never really been a Full time musician, as so many I have known and admired.
My life can be summed up in a few short lines ~
10 Years pouring Sweat – factories, construction laborer
15 Years pouring Steel – overhead bridge crane operator in steel mills both in Northeast & Southwest USA
26 Years pouring Meds – working my way up from CNA to LPN and in 2002, RN with 10+ years in hospice
Music was there at the beginning ~ and will be with me until the end
Working with Hospice as an RN for over a decade has filled my heart with an appreciation of love, life and examples of courage from the most unlikely sources.
In memory of all those who have gently touched my soul ~ I will never forget
For all those who have always encouraged me and endured me ~ my endless thanks!
