New music – Saint Patrick

This is meant to be a hymn, but I haven’t ever come up with words for it.  So, for now, it is a setting of a hymn known as Saint Patrick’s Breastplate.  Here is a link to the common English translation.  May it bring you peace and protection.

New music – Jonah

Another one I play almost every day at the cancer center…

Written in memory of Dr. Jonah Kule, who lost his life serving others in the Bundibugyo Ebola outbreak, November 2007.

Blessings,

You didn't set out to someday face Ebola;
you didn't aspire to draw your dying breath
gasping the words that spoke your last desire:
No one should die an Ebola death.

A Ugandan born to tend the sick in Uganda,
returning to the region of your birth,
shunning the wealth normally due a doctor,
you made a choice that multiplied your worth.

Jonah we remember you:
Your words still sound in our ears;
Your footprints mark your way from place to place.
Your hands still bind our wounds;
Your faith still calms our fears.
When we close our eyes, we see the light in your face.

Word came of a patient down with fever.
You went to his home to tend him at his bed.
In compassion you reached to help to turn him over.
Without any gloves, the deadly virus spread.

Jonah we remember you:
Your words still sound in our ears;
Your footprints mark your way from place to place.
Your hands still bind our wounds;
Your faith still calms our fears.
When we close our eyes, we see the light in your face.

You didn't set out to someday face Ebola,
but it didn't put out the light in your face,
it didn't put out the light in your face,
we remember the light in your face.

New music – Cool Breeze

Another song – I happened to play this one at the cancer center just today.

New music – Never Alone

Here is another piece that I play often at the cancer center.  I’m almost embarrassed by how simple it is, yet when I play it, I invariably have people stop and listen.

This recording is of the very first time I played it – I had gotten the idea and messed around with it a few minutes and then recorded it (so I wouldn’t forget it).

Enjoy!

My life at Forest Haven Farm, raising and living with animals, and managing multiple chronic diseases, while pretending to still be sane. Well. sort of. I put a lot more effort into being who I am without apology, then pretending to be anything or anyone else to be honest..
