Lyrics to "Floating On" written by Ashley Gonzalez Daneman

Recorded, Edited and Mastered by Gordon van Gent (GVG Productions)

"Estelle's Farewell Gift" written in memory of Estelle Procos' last visit with us, December 4th, 2011. A special moment when the two "Estelle"s, great-granddaughter Rivi Estelle Daneman (two months old) and great-grandmother Estelle Procos (92 years old), first shared their first and last moment together. Estelle Procos passed away peacefully only hours later. The moment was a gift never to be forgotten.

"Floating On" original composition written (originally titled "Lonely People, Lonely Times" in 2009) for the people of New York City and anyone else "floating on" in this world. Lyrics written in 2012 by Ashley Gonzalez Daneman.

"To Lay Down One's Life" was written for a commission by Spark and Echo Arts (November 2012). It is based upon the text in John 15:13, "There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friend." This is something we all can live by.

"Sun Shadows" was written at Manhattan School of Music for a timeless moment and admiration of a beautiful shadow cast through a window by the bright shining sun.
