Into the Dark

These songs chose me. Whether I wrote them or learned them from friends, these are the songs that would not let me rest until they were shared...Music is a shared experience consisting of friends listening and responding, completing a circuit. All the people, words, stories, and sounds that influence me are continuing on through these songs. I can only hope that they will inspire more words, stories, ideas...
