I have this past year gone back to writing ballads, making new discoveries in language and melody I’d not known to be possible before. Whoever said life begins at 40, hadn’t yet gotten to 50.
Just today, I went back to the song “Age.” I’d written a first draft in 2012 and rewrote that several times over the past few years. Something wasn’t right and I could never put a finger on it until today, when like manna in the wilderness, it arrived. I hope to record it next year with bass, keys and strings.
