ABOUT THE CD
Probably one of the most precious things in life is Time. It is something we cannot control, something that makes us very venerable. Within any given time, anything can happen with or without our control. Everyday life changes for people. Sometimes it can change their life beyond the recognition. Dreams can be shattered or realized. Relationships can begin or end. Hope can be born or destroyed. Within the time of each day, we can make choices that can affect so many people.
This album carries songs of appreciation. It is about taking time to stop and become aware that in the passing of time I may never get the opportunity to say the things I should, again. There is no time like the present. Perhaps time will never again afford me such chances and occasions. I can look back at the past with contentment or sadness and I look to the future as a place of boundless possibilities where I can help shape the destiny of the future world, one I become aware of my own vulnerability, in time.
Time has allowed many people to cross my path and for that I am eternally grateful. This album is for all of who have done so, and have helped in some way to shape my destiny.
FOR TIME WILL WAIT FOR NO ONE IN THE END
TIME GOES ON WITHOUT YOU. ON THAT YOU CAN DEPEND
AND THOUGH YOU MAY BE WONDERING WHERE IT ENDS
YOU CAN SAVE IT YOU CAN LOSE IT
YOU CAN CHASE IT YOU CAN CHOOSE IT
YOU CAN BE ITS VICTIM OR ITS FRIEND.
