This song was written when I learned that two sailors from the U. S. Navy jumped ship during the Viet Nam War and came home, refusing to serve any more in that awful war. My dream, of course, was that ALL of the sailors would follow suit and give it up. Not long after, the war ended.
Poem (song) and Two New Pieces
I’ll sing the song if my voice is ever up to it.
WHEN STARS WERE ALL WE HAD
A Poem and a Lullaby
FROM WHERE I STAND
Step in the Puddle
A Poem and Two Songs
The two short pieces that follow are a new sound for me, discovered, of course, by accident, making a guitar type picking style with with an added piano for the lead lines, which are also accidental. Love those happy accidents.

This one is an awkward conversation between the piano and the strings. Not an argument, really, but coming to terms.
Old Wisdom and More Music
This is a lament for all the people I’ve lost. Turn the volume down. It’s a lament.
