about

A merry Christmas Eve to all of my listeners who observe that particular celebration. I’m out in Denver, Colorado with Rebecca’s family, enjoying a fine holiday visit at the foot of the Rockies, and taking in the sites and sensations of someplace new to me. I thought about penning a Christmas song, since today’s post coincides with the holiday, but that doesn’t feel like me. I’m already onto New Years, as I continue my three-song “Orbit” cycle to end out the calendar year and start the new one.

This song is about domestic life, and the comfort of its predictable aspects. As I reflect on a year that saw a lot of change in the context of my partnership, especially with Rebecca apply to law school and completing her first semester, comfortable patterns have become important touchstones to me. We can change what we do, and even who we are, while still maintaining a tether to the familiar. As I extrapolate that notion to the context of the unpredictable changes the next years and decades doubtlessly hold, I feel a great relief.

Hold your loved ones warm and tight, and I’ll catch you in 2019.

lyrics

You know we’ve been here before
And we’ll be here for a long while
The click and the creak of the door
And your entrance in your own style

And dear you wouldn’t believe
How wide you smiled
The moment that the notion finally struck you
But darling I digress again

I lace up my boots for the mile
And I step out raising sunshine
I watch your reflection go by
And I linger in my own time

And dear you wouldn’t believe
How wide you smiled
The moment that the notion finally struck you
But darling I digress again
