Alena’s song of the week

Edward’s wife Alena is presenting a “Song Of The Week”. Keep an eye on it as occasionally unreleased pieces will appear. In the big picture, on the 10th of October 2015, Alena cast a seed which will eventually become the compilation album that resembles a giant beanstalk. Just beware of who lives at the top of it. !!!! That full album won’t be ready until many months have passed!!!!.
