Grow Some Food
At a Rotary club a few years ago, a member went on an international trip ( I think it was to the Phillipines ), where they were working at an orphanage. The kids were taught to grow food in anything they could, even a plastic water bottle.
That idea stuck with me, and I decided to write a song about it, when we planted our own garden. See the video here.
All is Right With The World – “The Happy Song”
All is Right With The World, is an original song I wrote to recognize the rare times in my life, when I felt very happy, and at one with the world.
The Natural Order of Things
Richard plays ukulele and is a singer songwriter, from BC Canada.
He and his wife have been married for 45+ years and had a son and a daughter. In 1991, at age 15 their son Nathan died from a short term illness.
The Natural Order of Things is a about how un-natural it is to bury your child, and how the natural order of life has been broken.
The grief that follows the death of a child is one of the largest stressors that a family can live through. Following the death of their son, Richard and his wife attended a grief support group for bereaved parents called The Compassionate Friends (TCF). The group can be found in many countries of the world.

The phrase is simple and the words are few,
but behind them is a whole lot of appreciation.
