Liner Notes: Lost Dog – Ellen Rocco of North County Public Radio hosts a weekly Blues Show. The station is great about announcing lost dogs across our region. One day there was 5 announcements and I thought there’s a song in there! Here it is. Chicken Soup is Nice – An ode to all the wise women who have nurtured us. Someday – Think of a family member whose 60. At age 20 you’re looking at a photograph of them at 40. Some day you’ll be as young as they were then. Wake Up - Climate, personal and political change is real. So is hope. Small Farms Rising – Inspired in part by the film of the same name by Ben Stechschulte and with appreciation for community gardens and farmers markets. The Storm is Coming – I began this song as Hurricane Irene was approaching our area. As with many disasters – we get to appreciate our neighbors. Disasters are also opportunities to learn! Shine Your Light – a gospel tune. Keeping Time – Inspired by the Adirondacks and the Rocking Chair Festival in Saranac Lake. Dancing in Heaven – our parents’ story. Traveling – a lively meditation on life. Holy Ground – A song of appreciation for our lives and our planet. Sing along at home! Drop in the Bucket – Reading Eaarth by Bill McKibben was both depressing and inspiring. We need to make personal change and advocate for political will. Thanks Bill. Take Me – Inspired by Jeannie Freeman who taught us how to see with all our senses and showed us that it really is possible to herd cats!
