Todays post and song is totally dedicated to a very dear childhood friend – Mark Gray:

http://www.marksartworld.com/

There’s too much to write about regarding our past history – but the cool thing is that we were both from NJ – and his Mom and my Mom were from the U.K and immigrated about the same time – they were best friends. Most ironically – his family and my family moved to the SF Bay Area just by less than 10 years apart – and by total coincidence and for different reasons – but here we are.

Some things in life are totally unexplainable – and maybe there is a sort of art of soul. Serendipity rocks. I wrote the lyrics based on how Mark and I would draw, paint or just goof around in pure joy with no encumbrances of the outside world when we were kids- and there is no reason to stop because you are an adult! You control your freedom – freedom is a state of mind – not controlled by the state.

Mark – this song was totally inspired by you after our recent conversations – and I forgot to tell you – my favorite paintings of yours are of the Jazz players – and that I absolutely love Jazz of all kinds. Jazz is the sound of soul – playful soul.
