Music is the language of love.
It is the ubiquitous story of life, an adventurous path of wonder, joy, suffering and hope.
As it expresses this journey in the subtle melody between the lines , music tells the story of  those who wrote, perform and hear it.
Eventually all things merge into one and the light of love shines upon us.
