    Just Wish I Could Publish It...

    I write classical music for fun, but I just wish I could publish it. Mind you, some of it is good. I use Noteflight on the Internet. Look it up if you want to write music too.

    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.. :)
