New Music~ Window Seat

Window Seat

At the end of December, Jason Shepherd sent me a beautiful instrumental, Window Seat. When I asked him what inspired the title of his song, he told me a story he had heard many years ago…   There were two old men in the hospital. Both were terminal. The one by the window was happy…

The Way You…New Music

The Way You

About a week ago, Jason Shepherd sent me the guitar portion of this song. I listened to it and the lyrics and melody came pouring out. There I am, in my home office, singing and laughing, and thinking “Oh this one is going to be fun!” And then I think, I better make sure my…
