Tasakeru.com’s Music page is now officially open, with my first finished piece: “Moonlight Lullaby – Veil of Tears”. I’ve been writing music for Tasakeru for quite a few years now, but it’s only recently that I acquired the tech to share it with people. Expect more in the future.
On a more depressing subject, I must pay my respects to Harper Lee, who died this morning at age 89. Of course, Ms. Lee was the author of To Kill a Mockingbird, one of the greatest novels ever written. To Kill a Mockingbird has been praised by so many people in so many different ways over the years that it’s nearly impossible for me to add anything… I can only say that reading it always takes me back to my childhood in North Carolina, to streets described so vividly that I’d swear I had once lived there, and people that seem like old friends. They say the highest compliment an author can receive is to hear a reader say that they can see your story happening in their mind. Maycomb, Georgia feels so real to me that I can not only see it, but hear, taste, touch and smell it. It feels like home.
Stand up. A legend is passing.
