This has been a deep and shifting time, and I have few words to share at the moment, though perhaps a story will emerge that merits telling.
In the interim, I'd like to share another song I recorded with you. This was written years ago by Amy Grant. It's called "After the Fire" (and her beautiful version can be found on the album, Simple Things, 2003, A&M).
I was playing this song for myself the other day and I was struck by how deeply it resonated with me, so I decided to record it. During this time of tremendous change (both inner and outer), I've felt both loss and the emergence of something very new. Pele's volcanic activity on the Big Island of Hawaii is mirroring the death and rebirth that is happening within me, and I suspect, for many of us right now.
When I sing this song, I hear the voice of my eternal self comforting the distraught and nervous human, holding me and reminding me that we are in this together.
Blessings to you all as we embrace change.
