An Evening in Bainbridge

We began our detour-filled journey back from Ohio to Phoenix on July 19th. Our first of many stops was to visit dear friends, who just moved from Arizona to Bainbridge, Ohio. We met them about a year ago at a Brett Dennen concert in Phoenix and had a handful of get-togethers before they moved to Ohio. They found their dream home on a beautiful farm of 11 acres, and are making great progress towards self-sustainable living. As always, we had […]

Black Sheep

Black Sheep I saw your face through a teary window Said you couldn’t sleep That you fought the day And lost in the rain Talk talk talk to me Hey what’s the matter You were born in the space between A black sheep Awake and cursing the chatter That sound you’ve learned to drown Sometimes and again Still you told me you could hold together Its easy to see, because you know And it makes you laugh Never wanna mind […]

Shades Like Hazel

Shades Like Hazel Reaching out your hand of stone Digging in that vast boneyard For the remains of those who trust They bury your lies while you roam With time broken bones heal Together harder than before And echoes of sorry turn to steel   And was it just so easy And so very simple, For you, for you Because I wanted to believe I wanted to believe in shades like hazel in shades like hazel But without vision… Without […]
