Album Notes
These songs are post cards documenting a 5 year stretch of life’s journey, The path was dark and often terrifying. When I embarked I hoped it would be a journey out of darkness but as my eyes became accustomed to the darkness I found the terror was transformed and the road instead led inward. The journey was from abuse and isolation to affiliation and generativity.

I recorded this project specifically because I didn’t want to. My life moved into brighter landscapes but my friend Lou Mancel convinced me to bring these songs out of retirement and into the studio. David Thorp added the depth of his understanding and his bass to anchor these pieces. My partner in crime and life, Cynthia added her experiences and voice to create the fullness and yet simplicity these songs deserved.

These songs began in my own therapy and continued into my training to become a psychotherapist. My mentor and supervisor through my training, Dr. Uri Reuveni, encouraged me to use the music as part of the therapeutic process. I have come to appreciate the courage it took to allow a student to move in, what was for the time, an unorthodox way.

Mostly I want to acknowlege the courage of those people who chose to trust me and share their stories. Because of the necessary confidentiality they will remain unnamed but appreciated and heard all the same.

Last but not least I would like to acknowledge Alan Frost and Holli Bara. They were not only song writing partners but they provided special support and friendship as well. Everything that came after was built on a foundation they helped co-construct.
