____________
As a welcome gesture, here is a prayer from the Navajos, one of the largest Native American tribe of North America. May all nature’s poetry lead you to my musical work.

May my step guide me
 
May my step guide me with beauty
 
May my step guide me all trough the day
 
May my step guide me long every season’s return
 
So that beauty may blossom back
 
 
 
Beauty of birds
 
Joyous beauty of birds
 
 
 
May my step guide me through the pollen-scattered path
 
May my step guide me through the grasshopper’s dance
 
May my step guide me through the clear dew
 
And may beauty be with me
 
 
 
May my step guide me to the beauty that has been
 
May my step guide me to the beauty that is yet to come
 
May my step guide me to the beauty of the sky
 
May my step guide me to the beauty that surrounds me
 
May my step guide me through aging, walking on the path of beauty, invigorated
 
May my step guide me in aging, walking on a path of beauty, to a new life
And in beauty I will march...
