I'm battling a fever today, so I must admit that this offering ended up a good deal less ambitious than I had originally conceived of it being. I had imagined three verses, with organ and electric guitar overdubs in the second and third, and perhaps even an additional layer of vocal harmonies here and there. Perhaps it is for the best that some inconvenient (and hopefully brief) summer bug got in the way of this song's excessive ruin. I like this minute-and-a-half long haiku of a song. It says what it means to, and then it stops saying it. It's a tiny love poem of a song about wanting to get on to the main event of this summer, which is of course our wedding. I also give you this portrait of a tiny little bird that came right up to me and asked me to take her picture. She seemed dissatisfied with my first few attempts, as she kept returning to let me try again. That, or she wanted a bite of my quinoa veggie burger. I didn't give her any; I've been accused recently of being a reluctant food sharer. Please have a great week, beat the heat, and wish me a speedy recovery!


You sent me back to sleep
Late this morning
And something I could keep
Was right there with me
The end of old July
Won't come faster
When August 1st arrives
I'll kiss you on the mouth
And tell you all about
The years all comin'
The seasons in your stride
I'm following you


released July 20, 2015
