    Discouraged By Theory Books

    Just Wish I Could Publish It...

    Set the Night to Music

    I love to sing, and I write poetry and would so love to be able to put all that to music and get the chance to play and share my stories with people through music.  Maybe someday I'll meet up with someone that will colaberate with me.. :)
