RIP, My Childhood Friend


We shared much through the decades-
school (French class, for one), pajama parties, monumental life events.


Adieu, mon amie Liz
Your essence lives on in each of us.

My Version of the Traditional "Day Is Done"


Inspired by photos I took of Beaver Island, Michigan 
back in 1998 and by one of the songs by Velma Frye 
on her album "Seven Sacred Pauses", 
I wrote my own verse ala the traditional song
"Day Is Done."


Day is ending, the sun is setting
o’er the lake, o’er the dunes, 
see it fade.
All is sound, safely rest;
God is near.
