Introduction I am drawn to and into music, and I am not ashamed to admit it! My practice of promoting peace and happiness through the spirituality of sound and music has been lifelong. I listen for the music of everyday life, but I like to live true to my own pulse. In the same way a professional musician would use dynamics to enhance music, I use music to enhance my life....and I try to share as much of that as possible. I am an American who is actively living in two places: in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia, and in Clarksdale, Mississippi, U.S.A.; and I am enjoying peace of mind...most of the time.
Interests Traveling; making and sharing music: mountain dulcimer, guitar, banjo, piano; blogging; knitting; painting; birdwatching. I'm enjoying the learning and socializing that is coming with the World's developing technology. Now and then, I try to Twitter as I travel here and there.
Favorite Movies The Sound of Music, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Mary Poppins, Steel Magnolias, Runaway Bride, Notting Hill, 50 First Dates, Groundhog Day, Music and Lyrics, Places in the Heart, Music of the Heart, Songcatcher
