This book is an artifact of songs I had written between 1976-1983, commemorated as this book of poetry entitled Song of Ron. The epilogue and poem Life is But a Dream were written in 2019. The photos are from 1982, 1981, and 2016 respectively. And so, 45 years have come and passed, and although I have forgotten how to play the guitar after setting it down since that time so long ago to focus on what was in front of me; of building a business, a family, and negotiating a life with my wife Cheri. I came back to music eventually to sing once again in another time and place, which became a saving grace. I am so glad I lived in a musical world to express myself and bask in its sea of emotions, feelings, and sensations. I knew right from the start that music and I were meant to be companions, resonating together throughout time. In my mind, Singers are born, and I was born to sing among other species of our world in the Animal Kingdom. It is what comes most naturally to me. There are memories and anecdotal reports of me singing at the very young age of 2 and 3. Ron is diminutive of the male given name Ronald, of Hebrew origin meaning "Song of Joy". So then Song of Ron is aptly named, for these are the lyrics from the songs that I wrote and sang with my guitar, a valued friend and trusty companion throughout those years.
