I have owned an art gallery, been an art restorer, a poet, a song writer, a fisherman, a charter boat captain, a sailboat skipper with extensive experience in the West Indies, a missionary boat captain, and have been alcohol and drug free since 1981. I remember very clearly how tough sobriety was early on, and I promised to someday make an album about this.
I belong to several 12 step programs, and understand the importance of "giving it away in order to keep it".
Some of these songs are humorous, (now), some are sad, as they describe a "hopeless state of mind and body" and others are more spiritual as I sing about my "higher power".
I hope you enjoy listening to "It Was-It Is", and if there is anyone who might be helped by my words, then I and truly thankful to God for using me as His instrument to do this!
Love to all,
