okay the songs!
The title track, everyday moments was inspired by three things. One,my friend Hélène asked me to write a song about housekeeping, saying no one ever does. I did remind her that my skills in that area were limited but I would try. Another friend was told after twenty years and 3 kids that she had not contributed enough. But it was a phrase from an add for pension funds that sparked it all “what does your life add up to”. I thought I’ll tell you what it adds up to, 1000 meals 1000 dishes, how many birthday cakes a 1000 hugs 1000 kisses a 1000 small mistakes….. and the song began.
