Music has always played a major part in my life. Ever since those early days of piano lessons with Mrs. Uri or playing trumpet in classical and jazz bands. I always remember the holidays or special occasions when my mom, Andrena, would regale us with wonderful pieces of music such as Malaguena or her own special version of Silver Bells. I have had the pleasure of singing in small and large choral groups from All-state to my own singing quartet group, Free and Easy, as well as, being a charter member of the infamous gospel choir, The Voices of Unity. Music continues to give me life changing moments and memories and I am forever grateful for this art and therapy.

So on my walk through the woods today, I thought it would be a wonderful gift to share the songs of Fall that make up my consciousness. These melodies cross several eras, yet they ring true for me as the seasonal mind set and the amazing way Autumn can be expressed in song. I call this list:
