Sometimes songs come as stories, but other times, I just want to capture images to help you feel the experience. My husband and I spent seven days on a wilderness whitewater rafting trip during the "worst weather in 13 years." But in spite of all of the struggles, there was something mystical about the physical act of being on the water in rain, in mist, in cold and in flickering moments of sun. Here is a rough draft from our next album "poet of Stones".
"Most of us have never really been thirsty. We’ve never had to leave our houses and walk five miles to fetch water. We simply turn on the tap, and water comes out. Clean. Yet there are 663 million people on the planet who don’t have clean water.
That’s a huge number. In fact, it’s twice the number of people who live in the United States. 1 in 10 people in our world doesn’t have access to the most basic of human needs. Something we can’t imagine going 12 hours without." Join us this night to raise funds for Charity;Water. All proceeds from donations to musicians and purchase of CD's will go to their efforts.
Life is hard...and beautiful - filled with moments of struggle and moments of peace. As an observer of the life that swirls around us, I attend to the stories of everyday people, listening for the moments of courage and grace that infuse their lives and listening for the music surrounding those stories. In Windfall, an acoustic duo with Tim Seawell, we share the soundscapes of our common human experience. through those songs and their stories.
