Contact Steve

Steve has always loved music.

His mind is filled with it and he seems to have an unlimited memory of the lyrics. They pop up in conversation often, since there is always a song lyric appropriate to the circumstances.

He recently wrote:

What would I do without music?
What if birds had no song?
What if waves made no sound?
What if we had no voice?
