Song by Trudi Richards


Hopeful blues.

Happy, upbeat, and free.

The way she was told life was supposed to be!

Look around and see a whole new world of possibility…

“We’re here for each other, me for you and you for me, ’cause that’s the way life is supposed to be!”

As Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake”

Give it a listen and lift your spirits!
