about

Some people very special to me have gone and made a whole new person! Nora came into the world nearly a week ago, daughter to my dear friends, James and Kristen. We live in a world in sincere need of new life. New life means new perspectives, new voices, new thoughts, and renewed hope. That's a lot of expectations to put on a newborn, so I'll simplify it a bit. What we can say for sure is that nobody has lived a life like Nora's before. It's hers and only hers, and I find that thrilling. We all get to start out new, we all get to live our lives for the first and only time, and we all get to walk the world as the only one to see it from our very own perspective. Nora, I wrote this song to wish you a pleasant journey through life, and to thank you in advance for everything new you will discover and share throughout that journey. Welcome, thank you, and safe travels!

lyrics

Child
This is the springtime
And you will learn
To feel it coming

Child
Born of a strange world
You are new
As yet untouched by time

You are the spring rain
Calling forth the flowers
You are the morning light
Calling home the hours
Morning Light

Child
Encounter the ages
Start from this point
Venture forth from here

Child
You are the only one
To open your own eyes
To see the world

You are the spring rain
Calling forth the flowers
You are the morning light
Calling home the hours
Morning Light
