Montage Series

I started to write the pieces that I call montages back in 1997.

They tie song lyrics to ideas, so in a way they’re mini stories for John and Marlena. Some were funny, others serious and sometimes completely out of Salem time into alternate realities.

But it was a way to not only indulge in listening to music, but also be able to stretch my imagination.
