Every year I write many songs for my wife Heather. Love songs. Anniversaries, Birthdays, Spring, etc. I get inspired by the love we have for each other. There are lots of songs in the archive, sort of a Basement Tapes-type treasure trove, (but without the genius of Dylan or the musical circus of the incredible Band.)
Here is one of this year’s songs. The idea was also inspired by an offhand comment my friend Brigid Finucane made. Funny how inspiration works.
It was a tough winter last year. Enough to traumatize lots of folks as this winter hit. It’s so dark right now, and I’ve always wanted to write a solstice song. Here’s one for Heather.
It hasn’t been the easiest year but love grows anyway. 1 by 1 and 2 by 2.
