Having the ability to rise up and continue working, or to then sit down without missing a single beat, while working along, has been a gift. You know I have ongoing back problems, so the UPLIFT DESK from The Human Solution allows me to work longer hours.


Thanks to everyone that has entered thus far. You are all winners in my book. Precious few of us ever finish songs, yet along allow others to listen to our creations. Imagine entering your song into a contest where it is judged against others? It takes courage folks, and each person that has entered is a winner. Congratulations to all of you.
