Austin Peralta (1990-2012)

It's hard to wrap my head around the idea that this incredible young man, so filled with charm, curiosity, passion, and an astonishing musical talent, is gone. Farewell Austin. You will be missed.

Such a tragic loss, as you say, of a young life - may his soul rest in peace. My heart goes out to his parents and all who loved him. This combination of talented and gifted artists, compelled by their own excellence and creativity to do the best they can with the gifts they have is a wonderful expression of love Tao. It should have a wee bit in it with you playing your wonderful tunes. I am reminded of what my mother once said to me, many years ago, which has formed the first page of my filofax for longer than I can remember....'God sends each person into this world with a special message to deliver, with a special song to sing for others, with a special act of love to bestow. No one else can speak your message or sing your song or offer your act of love.' The other one I remember is...'Live into the future. Be who you need to be for today and tomorrow and whatever you do, do it to the best of your ability....' Big hugs. b
