My tune 'Contemplating Life' only recently found a name. I’d written it some time ago, following a visit to the Isle of Man, but neither IoM, Isle of Man, or Manx something-or-other seemed a very useful title! I had a wonderful time, visiting all the towns, sights, and beaches there. Sitting on a beach, watching the sea has always been a favourite past-time – when it’s warm enough I immediately want to be in the water, and in colder months I love hearing the sound of the waves lapping against the shore. I find myself mesmerised watching the movement of the sea, resulting in a contemplative state. Playing this piece takes me straight back there … to a lovely, calm place.
