Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,
The song this cycle is Who Can Deny the Spring, written for the wedding of my son Jesse and his wife Lisa Sandoval. It was a co-write with Lisa who provided a lot of the insight into the themes and images. Also a nod to Tom Waits and his song You can never hold back spring. I love the simple truth of spring's promise and power and here it is again, after such a difficult year. Happy Spring! Leonore Hildebrandt and I recorded it in 2014 for our cd Something Else. She is on percussion and vocals.
Here's a playlist of all the songs from the newsletters.
My best to each,
