In 2018, Ash Wednesday landed on Valentine's Day and Easter Sunday landed on April Fool's Day. So, being a songwriter, I leaped at the opportunity to work with apparent paradox and wrote successively, a song called When Love Meets Dust, and another one called Holy Fool.
I think this song is really fitting for this phenomenal epoch we are walking through. Our planet and the great interconnected Web of Life, needs our love. And we need each other's love.
There's a longing, down inside.
And this longing never dies
It can destroy
Or it can trust
But it's what happens
When love meets dust
Also... below is rough draft of the recording I'm working on for the new album Hymns From the Icons.. this is a cover of that great tune that U2 wrote with Bob Dylan... Love Rescue Me.
Love rescue US.
May it be so.
