How Can I Keep From Singing?

Enya’s treatment of a Shaker hymn. I’ve always thought that “Come unto the Lord with a joyful noise” – sounds like something an infinite being would ask for!

Sisters of Mercy

A wonderful plaint. Posting inspired by my friend George Seaton’s touching comments about John Guldaman. Amazing lyrics and incredible rendition by Beth Orton.

Bramble and the Rose

Thinking about all the loves I’ve had, how our lives twined around each other and how we changed each others path through life.

Bless The Broken Road

Tammi introduced me to Rascal Flatts and this song in particular. God does speak to us through music.


Many people say their mate ‘made them bloom’ – my dear wife Marilyn was much more ambitious. The vines of her work run throughout my life now.

Piece of the Sky

I often hear it said that parents ‘…would give their child the moon and the stars…’ – my father did.

Raise me up

To all of you who have come to ‘sit awhile with me’ when it was the darkest, bless you. Your names are written in my deepest heart, not to be forgotten.

East Looe Boys

A WWII ballad that is simply amazing. I encourage you to find a recording of it – you’ll treasure it.
