Dear family, friends, and fellow travelers,
The song this cycle is Life Is Like a Car, written in the early 90s when two friends whom I had worked with on peace and justice issues were leaving the area. I remember finishing the last verse in the basement of the church where we were having their going-away party. Susan Merrill helped me with thoughts and feedback and we sang it together later that evening. It's a song that circles my chest often during times of farewells and passings and just deep friendship remembered.
Leonore Hildebrandt and I recorded it earlier this week (we're working on a CD that will be available soon). She and Susan Merrill and I had a lovely music trio, Solstice, back in the day.
Here's a playlist of all the songs from all the newsletters.
My best to each,
