The voice of Adonai and wading pools

The voice of Adonai is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, Adonai thunders over the rushing waters. Children play in aqua pools of sunlight, catching the gleam of pink and purple ruffles. Twirling in waves made by marco polo and freeze tag. Watching their joyful abandon on a summer afternoon brings me back to center. I return to my own moments of splashing, shimmering and glimmering in water and sun. Dancing and rejoicing in my turtle wading pool, singing songs of wonder and harmony with Adonai - my loving Adonai. TLE 2008

Photo: Desert Rose This last weekend, my friend James Reed and I had the time to wrap up recording the final touches on our upcoming Cd demo - "Samaritan". We started the recording project much earlier this spring and are so excited to have this stage of making a cd complete. All the songs on the CD ( You turned on the light, Blind, Brothers and Sisters dance, See-breathe-exhale-sing, Come to the water and Silver Moon) are original recordings that came out of a personal time of renewed interest and hope in creating, writing and performing music throughout the spring and summer of 2007.

Thanks to my drummer and friend
