First, the music. The interview begins with Leslie Adams's "L'Extase d'Amour," performed by violist Lisa Whitfield and pianist, Dianna White Gould. Later on, "Sence You Went Away" is performed by Darryl Taylor, countertenor, with me at the piano. I also turn up performing Leslie's Etude in A minor for piano.

The composer of these wonderful pieces is unlike anyone else I know, because his belief in himself seems unshakable. His path to joy may not be for everyone, but his decision to embrace all people should be.
