Notes: Winter came unambiguously to my neck of the woods during the first week of December. It felt appropriate and earned. At the same time, it also felt like a starker demarcation line between the seasons than I have come to expect in this era of upturned climate. A pretty snow cast the land in a quiet buffer. I could hear myself thinking. I could feel myself feeling. Snow slows us down, so I slowed the music down. Even as our first snow has all but melted in today's December rain, I know there is no going back now.


A wounded hand
A partial stop
Let it wait
Let it set its own pace

An open field
Covered deep
Let it snow
Let grow deeper still

A quiet breath
A silent hour to myself
What I hear when I breathe


released December 11, 2023
