Then Jenny joined me and we laughed and walked and talked and I said I wanted to write five short songs, and so we wrote eight.
And it dawned on me that this is how it feels when I get out of my own way. Everything becomes a song, a hymn, a poem – praising this Gracious Mystery that we are held in.
