My first since acquiring a Roland fantom X8 when I turned 62 and finished a career in the trades. Wanted a chance and the cyber world offered it, but I was from "my generation" knowing music from the whole of the 20th century and wanting to do a cd of Rock'n Roll, so taught myself..., and now it's Senior Citizen or Git Down Grandpa stuff

Track Name: Lights & Virtues
Here's to lights and virtues
Here's to truths yet to be known
Knowledge to light the darkness
The search for things of your own

A life of hope and purpose
Here's to strength yet to be found
Honor - though it goes unrecognized
And truth - though liars abound

The pleasure of love and friendship
The courage to be alone
