MUSIC & LIFE
Many people often wonder where my ideas for songs come from and occasionally wonder about the stories and concepts presented within the songs. To clear up any questions or doubts, you are invited to visit this website for SOKA GAKKAI INTERNATIONAL (SGI). This is my life practice and the source of my motivation, inspiration, and hope.
CAUTION - viewing this website could irreversibly change YOUR life (in a positive way, of course)
