What's up and Why

It is time for leisure time activities that can help you to live in "troubled times" and recharge from the existential stress of life.  Some of my compositions take you where I go when I am musing on the piano. Try using the music to focus on several basic, core activities that are important to good emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.  This is my goal.

My mother use to sing a song titled "the lost chord." I decided the lost chord must have been so beautiful  and transcendent that it was healing and it has been lost to us over time; I'm certain the chord is dissonant and probably some combination of all of the 12 notes. When musing  on the piano, I am always looking for it.
