I am dedicating this song to Karen Stockton. She was my piano teacher in Houston Texas from 1982 to 1984. She passed away in 2009. She was an outstanding concert pianist, but I remember her as simply a wonderful person who had a great gift for teaching and made every student feel special no matter their skill level. She had me compose a song in 1984 for a contest, and it reminded her of Strauss Tales from the Vienna Woods. So we called it "Tales of Cypress Woods." Then I entered the USAF Academy, became an officer and a pilot, and regretfully I did not keep in touch or play piano again for 26 years. I wish I could have thanked her for being such a positive role model in my life during my high school years. But I am thankful to have this opportunity to publish this song 30 years later with some revised and added material. In Karen's memory and honor I will donate at least $1 to the Piney Woods Wildlife Society for every song purchased. "Back to School 2015".
