Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,
The song this cycle is First Love, written in 2015 on my way to song writers' retreat. The tune had been circling around my brain - a nostalgic melody - and the words were jotted down as I drove along I-95 south. I didn't get around to recording it until the end of that year - that's me on vocals, piano and my only concertina recording (so far). A good fall song in terms of bitter-sweet and oh, that autumn moon - we had just such a one this last full moon.
Sometimes first loves are the only loves or the never known loves but, for many, this song may resonate with a recent love or one from long ago - all loves leads to gratitude and grace...
Here's a playlist of all the songs from all the newsletters.
My best to each,
