Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,

    I'm changing the frequency of the newsletter to once a month on the last Friday of the month.

    The song this cycle is Hymnal, written some years ago at song writer's retreat after waking from a dream about my dad on the anniversary of his death.  I recorded it at home a couple of years ago and love the blessing at the end...

    Here's a playlist of all the songs from the newsletters.

Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,

    It's been just a year since I started these bi-weekly music offerings.  The pandemic keeps changing, things are slowly opening, and we're re-learning our connections, making new ones.  My intent is to keep on with the bi-weekly publication of a new song.  I've heard from a great many folks over the year and it's helped me remember and cherish these connections and renew some friendships, deepen others.

Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,

Here in Downeast Maine the season has finally turned toward summer, warmer days and nights bringing a surge of life.  Sunrise is before 5 AM and a little after four, as night dissolves, bird song rises near and far.  The song this cycle is So Much Can Be Observed, which I wrote last year at this time joining in as one of those voices.  I hope you enjoy.

Here's a playlist of all the songs from the newsletters.

The song this cycle is Alone, written last summer at Catie Curtis' songwriters' retreat.  Our prompt was to take one of several poems and put it to music.  I chose Maya Angelou's Alone and worked out the music.  The recording was a draft made that morning with guitar and vocal and a piano side.  The lyric seems so apt for this time when we need each other more than ever and yet are so isolated by the pandemic and our social divisions.
