Friends, it has been a long fall, and coming to the end of it, I think it was even harder than I've given it credit for. My fiancée is coming home from a season abroad in Amman, Jordan. We've spent the fall patiently waiting for this coming Friday, fortunate to live in the age of modern conveniences like Skype. But there is no substitute for the real thing. This song is a sigh of relief for her imminent return, as well as a tribute to the accomplishment of diligently committing to our work, and providing support to each other despite the distance. We kicked ass. We have well earned the joy of our imminent reunion.

I'm looking forward to the next few days, because in the absence of my responsibilities to graduate school (which I completed for the semester last night) I am going to attempt a bit of a songwriting marathon to load up Mount Everest ahead of the holiday season, so I can breathe and enjoy friends and loved ones. I haven't done this in a little while, so wish me luck!


Way above the freezing rain
You traverse the earth on a flying plane
And it scrapes the sky to inscribe our names
And we see they're both the same

And that bird that lifts you up
On its precious wing, yes it's strong enough
And the day it brings you I raise my cup
To be with you, praise my luck

And if I know what searching means
Then I know the peace of discovery
And the placeless ages that intervened
And we wake into a dream

And if you know what patience is
And I know the world locked behind your kiss
Then we know you carry a place like this
'Cause we need it, this is it
