Close your eyes and imagine the sound that a tiny hummingbird’s wings make as she hovers over the feeder outside a window and sips at the nectar…..Whispers on the Wing.
This is an excerpt of Friends, a song I wrote while living on Maui. We were a long way from our home and the surprise visit of friends from the Mainland led to this song. I included it in my Album from Maui and later included it in my meditative and reflective CD Refreshing Rain. I again included it in my book and album: Let’s Play! 12 Piano Solos for All Occasions.
If you enjoy this excerpt, please visit my CD Baby site and get the download of Track 5 of Refreshing Rain. And while there, listen to excerpts of the other songs in this album; also check out my other 2 Albums on CD Baby.
This is my first Vocal album. It is my 11th album; my other 10 albums are Instrumental.
There are 18 songs on this album. Some are recently recorded where I live on the Central Coast of California. Others were recorded several years ago in Michigan or on Maui. The songs all have a personal connection to my life and run the gamut from lullabies for my two grandsons to an art song to songs about Peace, Love and Beauty.
The album was finished in April 2018 after holding My First House Concert. You can hear the last song, “Hold Fast To Your Dream” by going back to HOME and clicking on the YouTube of this song. A few excerpts will be added in this space….stay tuned.

Dance of the Insomniac
If you have ever suffered from insomnia (and who hasn’t?), you will appreciate this piece that starts out manic–that feeling you get after too many nights struggling to sleep. It is included in my CD Wonder.
Then go listen to Whispers and Meditations, my recently released Album guaranteed to help you sleep!

This piece will definitely get you walking! Aim for those 10,000 steps today!

It is with great excitement that I release my latest and most meditative album, “Whispers and Meditations.”
It is a full CD with 20 piano solos, all of which are guaranteed to relax and refresh. The beautiful melodies are guaranteed to provide a refreshing and quietly meditative interlude in a life of busyness and activity. Lovely distraction!
Some of the titles are: “A Meditation,” “Sweet Dreams,” “Fall Reflection,” “Whispers on the Wing,” Maui Tradewinds.” All are quietly meditative.
It is my second “meditative” album and I think it is a great way to start the day or a great way to wind down from the day.
The titles are:
- Whispers on the Wing:
- Maui Tradewinds
- Crystals Whirling, Colors Swirling ‘Round the Room
- The Orchid
- Sweet Dreams
- A Meditation
- Waiting for News
- A Walk in the Fields
- Family Times
- Dreams & Schemes
- California Rain–in Midst of Record Drought
- In Trust
- Expectantly Waiting
- So Far Away
- Hello & Goodbye
- Fall Reflection
- Just Another Day
