It is my 50th birthday this week. I always have mixed emotions leading up to this day as it was the day I was separated from my mother. Of course, I am eternally grateful to have been given the gift of this amazing life. On the flip side, I feel a sense of sadness for what could have been if I hadn’t lost the opportunity of growing up in my own family. Somehow I need to hold the grief and gratitude simultaneously. Lucky I have some understanding of the concept of non-duality!

Luckily, also, music has been a huge part of my life, thanks to my adoptive parents, and I have been able to use it to process the complex emotions of living the life of an adoptee. I wrote this piece of music quite a while ago now and my natural father, who I met for the first time when I was 28 years old, arranged to have it orchestrated for me. A healing experience indeed!

I wonder, do you have an area of your life where you think music might just be the tonic to make your life better. You already have a great life but there is always room for more, isn’t there?
