“J&A, which goes to many unexpected places, was inspired by the curiosity and playfulness of my youngest children, Julia and Adam. Lament for Peace expresses my sadness, anger, and frustration as the government beats the drums of war. Beginnings reflects the joy and freedom of a new beginning after an especially dark and difficult time in my life. From My Heart is dedicated to my folks, who taught me from the very beginning to play ‘from my heart’.”
