Growing up in the Big Apple on Staten Island, Bill kept “borrowing” his sister’s Christmas present, a ukulele.  Soon he moved to a guitar, then another, and another, until…, he put his music aside for a very long time.  As fortune would have it, a day arrived a short time ago, and he set off on a new musical journey with family and friends to reach new horizons.

From an early age, Bailey Jo has worked with determination and discipline to nurture her creativity.  After university, she packed her car to follow her passion for singing and songwriting.  On arriving in New Braunfels, Texas, a rainbow welcomed her.  Some time later, it happened again.  Another rainbow, this one guides her to a new avenue of expression.

Touchstones of the Inspired Life – Episode 1: Unbury the Joy

This is the first episode of Touchstones of the Inspired Life a podcast dedicated to inspiring people through the personal journeys of those seeking their way to a more fulfilling life.   

Our first guest is Cathy Fennel, a voice actor and writer.  From a young age, Cathy has been in love with reading and writing.  During her formative years, there was little support for creative endeavors but a lot of advise from the elders to pursue a job that provides financial security.  Writing was not a part of their equation.  This is her story of holding on to and quietly acting on her dreams of writing.
