I have come to the realization that the essential healing element within the music I play for those who are sick and vulnerable, is the offering of love…love expressed musically. In my own simple way I now find that I am able to reach out to people through my music and draw them into an experience where they feel the loving presence of a caring stranger who offers tenderness, compassion, consolation and support in their difficulty. In a very short time we enter into an intimate communion with each other created through the musical offering and an attentive, caring presence. Words fall away, the experience needs none. The time together often concludes in comfortable, languid silence… a reverie that I don’t want to disturb. The experience is very tangible. Mystery is encountered, but the outcomes are measurable.
