Since 1986, we have owned a home on a 9–acre parcel in the town of Searsmont in central coastal Maine: a landscape of small farms, low-bush blueberry fields, and woodlots inhabited by deer, wild turkeys, numerous species of birds, and the occasional moose, black bear, and coyote.
Our home sits on a gently sloping parcel on the eastern side of Muzzy Ridge. From our house, we have a beautiful view eastward to Levenseller Mountain, part of the group of small mountains that includes the Camden Hills.
It is in this setting that I have composed many works in the past 27 years. Our publishing enterprise, Muzzy Ridge Music, is named for this place that I love. The logo of Muzzy Ridge Music is based upon my rendering of Levenseller Mountain as seen from Muzzy Ridge.
