"To passionately feel the music is to passionately understand how an artist works. To understand ‘What is a song?’ A song is frozen thoughts and inspiration that is collected and placed into a vibration that when heard creates thoughts, images, feelings and emotions of the heart that become the memorable moments of a person’s life, so that when you hear that song that memory of life and those emotions and feelings ignited within you literally come to life taking you beyond infinity into a place of pure bliss. So that when you hear that song, you transported right back to that memory in your life that ignites that passion and desire within your heart. Those are the powerful songs of the heart. When we give another such inspiration it is the universe kissing us with the breath of inspiration through infinite possibility" ~unknown
