    1. I can – but I have hardly touched it since the kids were born. I really should practice more often. That’s not a bad idea for a story either 🙂

  1. I love harp music. One of my favourite writing CD’s is by Loreena McKennitt. She plays the harp in most of her songs. The CD has a magical, Celtic quality to it. Love it! Never fails to get the writing brain moving.

    1. Hi Laverne – I love Loreena McKennitt too – she was the reason I wanted to play in the first place! 🙂 Which Album do you have? One of my favourite pieces of hers is La Serenissima, and I actually have the sheet music to play it. Beautiful!! 🙂

      1. Oh my goodness! You have the sheet music! How cool! I’ve ripped the album “The Visit” to my computer and have that along with the rock band, Muse on random – oh – and the soundtrack from the movie, “City of Angels”. Wonderful music that gives a different feel and helps get my muse going! I did have another album of Loreena’s but have lost it ad can’t remember what it was called. All I do know is that I’m still in mourning for it! Will have to go and buy more of hers.

      2. I love The Visit! My favourite though is Book of Secrets – it has Dante’s Prayer, and The Highwayman, which are my other favourites of hers. I also have ‘An Ancient Muse’ which has some good music on it too.
