except track #7, 1994

(snippet from track#8:)
as an artist, (like many other artists i know), i tend to be a perfectionist...but i realize, over & over again...each time a friend, or a friend of a friend, or someone in our tiny global village goes on to a "better place", that tomorrow is not promised. my mom has always said,"give me my flowers while live"...yes...& this is my flower to you...my offering...my gift to give back as a present--IN the present...the here&now...
i hate to sound cliche', but no one knows the day, nor the hour...ya know?...so anyway, enough babbling...here it is...
perfect
in its
imperfection...

enjoy!...
