There are additional works in progress based on original musical or lyrical ideas developed over the years, which can serve as foundational elements for new songs or customized musical content needs for different applications. Whether a complete composition or a partial melodic idea, each represents a moment on the life journey, seeking answers to questions that challenge us, and trying to understand what it is we can and can't control, and why things are as they are. For me, the answers aren't there yet and the journey continues --- and music is woven throughout and continues to be my way of expressing and capturing experiences along the way.
