Naw. No mid-life crisis, my daughter caught me unawares out at a lake. I was getting ready to go on a tube, so I didn't want my cap to blow off. I lasted about 10 minutes and then my back and neck were killing me. Now that, is a mid-life crisis :)
Great music, very beautiful writing and really good orchestration, it is very nice to use different styles, your track The English Garden is little bit close to my composition Love Melody but in the Oriental style, and very nice that you used the same idea in The Soldier's Dream but with different rhythm, you can listen to Love Melody in my site or from the youtube.com just please follow this link.
I just posted 6 new songs I wrote because I just got Mp-3's of them to put up here. Give a listen and tell me what you think. I enjoy songwriting but don't get to do it often - here is the best of my work in this genre! ENJOY
