The sabbatical's over!

2005 to 2006! From the fullness of last summer, to the dizzy rush of the following fall and the blossoming possibility intimated even in the depths of winter I suddenly came to stillness this past spring; "on sabbatical" fellow musician Nick Blechman commented as we shared stories from the music road recently. * The news - the sabbatical is going well - Recovering the body - muscle, bone and breath Gaining energy and strength, Walking and carrying and finding new truths. Throwing wide the windows of my music To the heat and sun and breeze Scrubbing down the glass and sorting through papers Washing my heart with breath, and listening - For birds, waterways, Any news of peace in this fragile world.
