Word from the Artist
May the Muse be With You!
"Once upon a time, when I was a little girl, my father told me I could stay up as late as I wanted so long as I stayed near the fireside where he could see me and know I was safe. In my youth, I was want to revel in such an escape from the dreaded injustice that was 'bed time'. I could not have imagined how my life would change given the simple gift of a doting father's humoring whim. That evening, and many since, I saw the stars fade to dawn as I reveled in wonder at the spectacular stories shared midst the smell of smoke before the glow of embers. Tales of honor, love, sacrifice, and service all presented by tale-spinners, poets, minstrels, and voices of immeasurable talent enchanted all. Instead of lulling me to sleep, these mages of the imagination stoked in me a brilliant new passion to dream; and share those dreams with others.
Growing up to the stirring ballads of Leslie Fish, Mercedes Lackey, and Loreena Mckennit, and later having the great blessing to learn from some truly stellar teachers in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), I found my own voice; wrote my own songs, and with the help of Ravenboy Music, and fellow artists, share them fireside (and digitally) today. May they be worthy of your time and stir in your own hearts the drums of war, the pangs of love, and the enduring notions of duty, honor, loyalty, humility, passion, and perspective. And to all you dreamers out there, near or far ~ Play on!"
