You have to start somewhere – just like the yellow brick road. What a metaphorical path to set a 3 year old on.  Just now, as I am considering this 60 years later, it makes perfect sense. The images in this “muse collage” are just the beginning of a much longer influential road.  Some of the faces here would be considered “roots”, and others indicators; either way, they represent my core as a singer/songwriter…for starters.
