I just recorded a demo of a new song - Thin Line - about my experience with the Montecito Tea Fire last November. Even though I did not suffer a loss like many other people in this area, I saw the flames headed toward my house at the start and am shocked every day at the devastation suffered by our beautiful community. I am offering this song as a free download in the hopes that it will contribute to the healing process. The other new song - Leave a Light - was prompted by the story of a woman political prisoner, but I think it also applies to many other situations of longing for "home" in the midst of apparent hopelessness. These two songs will eventually be fully produced and put on my next CD.
