Side A. Meant to Be
Side AA. Over The Horizon
Take Me Back:
Locals say that once you visit the Florida Keys you get the ‘Key’s Disease.’ You just can’t wait to go back and I wrote about that feeling.
Back to the Island:
It’s about getting back to your essence-to a good place in your life and relationships.
I was thinking about single parents, especially single Moms who raised wonderful daughters, turning little girls into beautiful young ladies, and sacrificing so much to do it.”
Broken Love Songs:
This is a traditional blues song that sings about lost love and life.
It’s a good old fashioned country love song. Its finding love and the uplifting feeling that goes with it.
I wrote this on my birthday on June 5, looking at the Super moon. I was inspired by Plato who said that ‘Divine madness comes from above.’ I really love how Michele Benson sings it.
I’m Going Fishing:
Some say this song reminds them of the Kinks. It’s a nod to our wonderful environment and the great efforts of our fishermen to keep it that way. What’s more beautiful than our oceans and waters?
It’s not about giving up but giving room in your life to empowerment by releasing your ego. It’s the recognition of a higher power than your self.
I’m Going Home:
Simply, a song for our troops in far off lands. I’m always thinking of those men and women who sacrifice so much for us.
Ray of Hope:
When a very close friend of mine committed suicide I felt the need to write about it. It’s vital that people know and use the Suicide Prevention Hot Line. It saves lives.
It’s the hardest thing to give-especially to yourself. You cannot forgive anybody else until you forgive yourself. Forgiving those who have hurt us is a true act of love.
