Like the moon in the night sky
I been waiting for you
Lit up by your sunshine
Far away from you

All alone on the last night
I been thinking of you
Way off in the sun rise
Nothing else I can do
But wait


This quiet meditation is the final song of the three that I wrote and recorded in the week preceding Rebecca's return. Its calm and simplicity put a period on that week's creative exploration, as well as the wait itself, since It was recorded on the final morning before she came home. It is in contention for the title of shortest Mount Everest song, but I lack the desire to verify its status. It is every thing it should be though; a momentary punctuation to a much larger sentiment.

Included is an unrelated photograph from my older brother, Eben. I've posted it here because I like it, and because Eben's photography deserves wider circulation. More of his photographs can be seen at renaissancedilettante.com.

I hope this week's song finds you all fat and happy from a holiday season well spent with friends and loved ones. This is the final Mount Everest song of 2014, which turned out to be a big year for me. Here's hoping you all enjoy peace, prosperity, love, and kindness in the year to come. Sing Auld Lang Syne with great gusto, and raise a glass to old friends this New Year, then pat yourself on the back for completing another lap around the sun. Great job!
