My main goal in life is to fulfill my purpose on earth and help to fulfill other people's purposes, too. I want to make a little positive contribution and make the part of my world a more peaceful and loving place. I love music and it's the principal channel through which I carry out the above goals. I'm professionally and thoroughly prepared in several music areas: composition, orchestral/choral conducting, performance (classical guitar and organ), college teaching, and church music.

In my website, www.RafaelScarfullery.com, you can watch my music videos, listen to my CD's and buy them, see samples of my compositions, buy scores for downloading, download free scores, read about my music career, read my thoughts and other people's quotes that help us to become better human beings, and much more. If you'd like, send me your feedback. I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for visiting!

Our hopes keep us alive. A friend of mine from Kansas, Glenn, taught me that life is not a destination, it is a journey. My desire is that throughout this journey we may see our hopes a reality. Think about this:

Men and women are limited not by the place of their birth, not by the color of their skin, but by the size of their hope. John Johnson

La esperanza nos mantiene vivos. Un amigo de Kansas, Glenn, me enseñó que la vida no es un destino, es un viaje. Mi deseo es que durante este viaje podamos ver nuestras esperanzas como una realidad. Lea este pensamiento:

El ser humano no está limitado por el lugar de su nacimiento, ni por el color de su piel, sino por el tamaño de su esperanza. John Johhson

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot. The possibility is always there.
Monica Baldwin

El momento cuando te levantas por primera vez en la manana es el mas maravilloso de todas las 24 horas del dia. No importa cuan cansado te sientas, posees la certeza de que durante el dia que tienes delante de ti, cualquier cosa puede pasar. Y aunque casi nunca pase nada, no importa. La posibilidad esta ahi.

Hello! I hope that you may see the beauty that is around you.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases;
It will never pass into nothingness;
But still will keep a bower quiet for us,
And a sleep full of sweet dreams,
And health, and quiet breathing.

By John Keats, Endymion Bk. i, I

This is an excellent way to live to the fullest:

Take every moment, as though it may be your last.
Live it to its fullest, for soon it shall pass.
On your way to the end, make as many memories as you can,
For when you reach the end, it may be all you have left.
While I am away don't look down or back, because you won't see me,
Just look in your heart and dreams, and I will always be there.
So till I return, follow your heart and dreams,
Because I will be there with you, every step of the way.
