Animal training by my wonderful sister

A few days ago, we had bacon. The day after that, we had bacon again. Someone said something about yesterday’s bacon. I said that would be a good title for a song. So I wrote a song titled “Yesterday’s Bacon.”


So, I wrote some liner notes / annotations for my album Wanderlest this morning, and wanted to share them on my website for those of you who have listened.

Check them out here.

Here is a rough version of my Woodland Dreams Suite. The last movement may get an addition in the near future. This piece is several years in the making, and some of it may sound familiar to you from previous recordings. I’ve gotten inspiration from many sources. Enjoy.

Close up of a branch

Close up of a branch

I’d rather freeze to death,

Than feel the warmth that once I felt,

The heat that I was dealt,

And which took away my breath.


I’d rather be bereft,

Than be the person who I was,

Who went along so just because,

She knew there was nothing left.


I’d rather be forgot,

Than immerse myself in sorrow,

As if there’d be tomorrow,

To find what I have not.


I’d rather be a ghost,

Than admit that I have failed,

That my train had long derailed,

And I lost what I want most.


Yes, I’d rather freeze and die,

Than step into the fire,

And face my deep desire,

That makes me want to cry.
