Lyricist Peter Link collaborated with composer Carol Jay to bring us this quietly joyful song of gratitude for the opportunity to "...stand in the silence of my being with the phosphorus of heavens shining down on me, like a blanket o'er this earth in solemn presence shining on as far as I can see. And in this quiet place, time's insignificance makes me laugh at all the ways that I run my life. I watch the summer moon and here in this quiet grace I know I'm all I need to be, and the world is mine..."

BIOGRAPHY

My parents knew I had an aptitude for music when they heard me singing back Beethoven concertos from my crib. I started piano lessons with my Mom when I was five. When I was ten I won first place in the state juvenile composition contest for my suite, "AT THE ZOO." I have been playing piano and writing ever since.

I got my Bachelor of Music in Theory from Indiana University, Shortly after, I moved to New York where I studied arranging with Don Sebesky and did some post-graduate studies in orchestration and conducting at Juiliard. During the early 90's I was a member of the BMI Jazz Composers' Workshop under the tutelage of Manny Albam and Bob Brookmeyer. During my stay in New York, I have worked as a transcriber, composer, arranger and orchestrator for Judy Collins, Ashford & Simpson, Warner Bros. Publications, Cherry Lane Music, McGraw Hill, Silver, Burdett & Ginn, Jonathan Larson, Steve Ross, Brad Ross and many others. I have written several T,V, themes and unrscoring for various sports shows, including "The Racers" which was a syndicated show on ABC, hosted by Curt Gowdy.
