    Not sure why Mo, but the song and the drawing really resonate with me, reminding me of something I just can’t reach from my past. Rod’s voice is perfect, as are the words, and there’s something about your rainy road stretching away into the distance that I love. Hmmm… Beautiful, Mo! 💝

      thanks Carol this one was written when we were taking a break at Mullengrove Cottage up on Berry Mountain. I was reading a book by Charles de Lint in which one of the main characters was a fiddle player in a Celtic band, somehow the music from the book entered Rod’s psychic space and out came this song all in one night with that Celtic lick!

    The rain … the rain and the water washing bits and bobs down the street, along with the little boat … handled with care

    The birds in the sky circling the sun make the perfect complement to the roadside rain crow….the upside for sure.

      it’s all about trust in the process… hitchhiking, writing songs, making art…
      this is my favourite verse;
      “what we’re talking about, can’t be taught, can’t be sold, can’t be bought
      is real as shadows, on a wall, comes like pride, before a fall
      you can’t put it in your pocket and store it away, save it for a rainy day”
