The Story by Gary Farr
Back in 1996 I was given a book cassette of Marianne Williamson's 'Return to love' by a bass player friend who had recently lost his girlfriend to Leukemia. The tape sat in my studio for several weeks, I would look at it and think to myself, 'he's gone religious on me, it's understandable, he just lost his girlfriend'. I would get phone calls from him at least three times a week about the tape. "Did you listen to it? It's really great, Gary you have to hear it!". I continued putting him off. I had planned a short trip down to Islamorada for a few days, it's about a two hour drive from my house. I popped the tape in the car and I started listening to what Marianne had to say. I thought to myself, 'she has some very valuable points about life, within yourself, who we are, what is our purpose here on the earth'. After listening to it for 10-20 minutes, my wife leaned over to the volume knob and I thought she was going to turn it off, she turned it up instead! We listened to the whole tape several times during that 2 day trip. Marianne's book is based on 'A Course in Miracles' book. I won't get into details here, find out for yourself! So we decided to get the book. Coincidently my mother-in-law was given the book by a friend that same year so she gave it to me. Let me try and make this short, from the readings and teachings of ACIM, I became so inspired and in touch with God, the inspirational composing started flowing through me like there was no tomorrow. I had to share this music with everyone, and I did. The music has touched hearts and souls and is a feel good situation for everyone - Gary
