I have written a song based on the short story ‘Goodbye’ written by my Leeford Village co-author, Jon Markes.

Jon and I collaborated with the musician / producer, Bruford Low, to make a recording of the song, ‘Did you think of me’.  I provided the vocals and played acoustic guitar, Jon played bass guitar, with Bruford on keyboards / percussion.

The song can be listened to below and the story can be read on Jon’s website here

The acoustic version of 'Did you think of me' is on ‘Braccia Unplugged’ here

Scroll down to see a quote from 'Could it be That Way' ...

Try to understand how they feel - put yourselves in their place. Imagine you are in a foreign country with no money, possessions or friends. You cannot speak the language; the culture is completely different to your normal environment; isolated and helpless. You would be dependent on someone supporting you. Think of that when you next meet someone who is autistic...”
