In my last two posts I’ve shared how I came to learn how to play the piano and sing. But to those who haven’t actually heard me do either, it could come across as just a story. I could say I’ve learned how to play the accordion, too, but if I can’t prove it, again, it’s just a story.
(By the way, I did try playing the accordion once and was terrible at it. I can’t say for certain, but I’m pretty sure the sounds that I had coming out of that accordion were rather similar to that of the mating call of a rhinoceros. I could picture myself playing it at the zoo and zookeepers getting furious at me and warning me to stop playing. “The rhinoceros is loose and headed your way! For God’s sake, stop playing! Put it down! Put it down!” And I would. Quickly. I like my backside just the way it is, thank you.)
Anyway, here, for your viewing pleasure, are a few video clips of me playing the piano and often times singing as I play. All recorded within the past few years, the video clips as well as the sound can come across as rather crude from time to time as I took them with my phone. At the time and presently, I simply can’t afford professional or even adequate recording equipment. If I could, I’d get all that as well as the proper lighting equipment, green screen for the background, and whatever I would need to make savvy videos. I’d also get a new keyboard so as to further enhance the music recordings I could make.
Recorded at such places as my home, Central United Methodist Church in Sedro-Woolley, Washington and Bay View United Methodist Church in Bay View, Washington, From My Heart To Yours tells a bit of my personal journey – my heritage and upbringing, what I have learned about myself, what I believe in today, and what I stand for both now and always.
I truly hope you enjoy them. If the songs bring you encouragement – if they are exactly what you needed to hear at this very moment for whatever reason – all the better.
And there it is. You’ve seen and you’ve heard. If they have meant anything to you at all, please feel free to like this post and perhaps comment on it. If you feel the songs might mean something to someone else, let them know. My ambition is to make a positive difference in as many lives as possible. To not only make you or them smile, but to offer hope and light to those who are living in despair and darkness.
Today and always, From My Heart to Yours, I wish you the absolute best.
Until next time…
