“We come in fear, we come in pain, shed many tears, like falling rain. Through it all, it’s clear to see, the light of love will set us free.” These are the lyrics that open the song, Simple Grace. While we plan to include it on the studio CD that’s in production, events in the world caused it to be published sooner. As we wrote about in our previous blog entry, the song was included in a compilation to fund One Fund Boston, the relief fund for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Our local newspaper, The Bolton Common, is owned by GateHouse Media New England. As part of a series about folks who found ways to help in the aftermath of the tragedy in Boston, we were interviewed, photographed and video taped recently. A story was published, and the video is online.
The story captures the meaning of the song and the journey a song takes from pen to performance. Give it a read here (opens new window). The video is below (requires Flash, so it won’t work on mobile devices):
