Born in 1953, I am a composer, instrumentalist and Logic 8 software practitioner. NHS Bereavement Counselor retired. A Philosopher now disabled, bedbound but happy. I have been a Buddhist, martial artist, paramedic, orthopaedic technician, professional artist, civil servant, photographer, and amateur astronomer. I have owned houses, and been homeless. I have been hungry and full. Made enemies, and made friends. The pits, and the peaks. Unable nowadays to leave my bed for more than a few minutes per day. My limited time is employed in reading and musical composition. I had many works performed for the public during my active youth. Having started in classical music as a promising child violinist, I migrated to perform in Folk and Progressive Rock groups, in 1970, playing bass/lead guitars, and flute. I have recently been experimenting with classically themed prog. rock pieces, which I find quite exciting. For all this, and good friends lost, I could not survive on this transforming Earth for long without the 24/7 input I receive from my ever present, loving, intelligent, and fantastically talented family. Love to my wife, son, and dog.
