    Do you happen to have the sheet music for this for sale? I really enjoyed this piece and would love to play it.

      Hi Joshua, I just finished writing this composition this week so the sheet music is not available yet. I could have it ready in the next month – do you want me to email you when it is completed?

      You got it! I’ll get started on the sheet music right away – should have it finished in about a month. Meanwhile, stay well.

    Thank you so much for sharing; your work is always so insightful, so provocative, so inspiring. The Raven is no exception.
    I have wondered, if, in this period of seclusion, whether you have found inspiration for additional new works?
    To you and yours, be safe, be careful, be well.

      Hi Joan, Thanks for your message. The short answer is “YES”, I have definitely found inspiration during this challenging time. I have been writing almost every day – in fact, working on another piece right now which I hope to finish in the next week or two. How about you – are you finding yourself creating these days? These days of seclusion allow us the space to find what makes us “human” – and I really believe creativity plays an important part. Anyway, thanks again for keeping in touch. Stay well.
