Song of the Day – ‘Overjoyed’

  Finished compiling my latest writing soundtrack.  Found a place for one of my all time favorites. Not the only songwriter whose songs you can just read the lyrics as a great poem, but Stevie might outrank them all. Enjoy!  

Song of the Day – ‘Lately’

But last week was…yeah… So we’ll continue to monitor what’s going on.  God willing, nothing else that screams EMERGENCY goes down in the next seven days. Ideally, this week will […]
