    You Are Magic is an upbeat collection of songs designed to open a spiritual dialogue for young children and families. What are the values we choose to live by, and how do we express them? Who are we, and why are we here? How do we connect with others? Where does creativity come from? How do we connect to the natural world? What can we do to make the world a better place?

    This album is a concept album. The over-arching theme is that our own creative energy and momentum, which comes to us (especially children) naturally, is reflective of the creative energy and momentum of the universe. Everything we do reflects how we are a part of something bigger, and the more we are authentic in our self-expression, the more we reflect the true nature of who we are and why we are here. I really felt like kids and families needed to know this - that creativity, awareness, connectedness, and empathy are the sources of becoming and growing into who you really can be in the world. I envision the album as a tree, starting with the Roots & Branches, and reaching all the way through the Leaves & Sky.

We never know when an experience is going to open us up in a new way, or something that seems difficult can actually be just the thing we need to move us in the right direction. I look at these moments as gifts - they are surprising, they are often “wrapped” in something that doesn’t look like a gift at all, but we just have to be open to recognizing these gifts when they appear in our lives.


The Gift

Sometimes the gift comes early
sometimes you have to wait
sometimes it’s wrapped in paper
sometimes just dropped at the gate

Sometimes the gift comes from someone
you’d never expect or believe
and sometimes it comes from nowhere
and then you just need to receive

You could wait all your life for the gift to appear
but it doesn’t work quite that way
you could look everywhere for the gift - there and here
but the gift is well hidden away

The gift doesn’t come when you’re looking
it won’t arrive if you are watching the clock
get on with your day and your life
the gift is the key to a mysterious lock

Open the gift when it’s given to you
you’ll know when you see it, you’ll know
open the gift when it’s given to you
you’ll love it, I promise, I know
