Default Flying Solo - New Song on the death of my wife.

Late last year my wife of 47 years died suddenly and unexpectedly. This song is my reflection on that twist of fate. http://www.soundcloud.com/edrobins47/flying-solo-2

Old browser won't let me access your dedication, and much of Show & Tell, but I wanted to express my own thoughts about your loss. Keep her safe in your thoughts and heart, and keep playing. It's great therapy.

Thanks, Jayne, I appreciate your kind thoughts.
If anyone is interested, I have just had my wife's brother add cello and harmonies to a new version at http://www.soundcloud.com/edrobins47...olo-PU-Version
I think this adds some depth and richness to the sound.

Thanks all.
