01 Perfect Storm
The Blessing -- Every ending has at its core the beginning of something new. At the start of this Journey I am in transition: new house, new city, new car, new life. I am floating. In what is chaos around me I feel peace and freedom to be whoever I am. In the storm I find comfort and pleasure and power. As the rain falls I become new. I am washed and purified. I am ready for what’s to come. The ogham fid is Beith for purification and new beginnings.


PERFECT STORM // I crossed o’er the river / the sun setting low / the clouds started gathering / and a voice I should know, said / this river is rising / and you’re in its way / the thunder is rolling in today // I can’t help but wonder / at all I’ve undone / at all I am building / at all I have sung / this bridge was the hardest / the river runs deep / and swallows the secrets / I no longer keep // when the rain falls / when the rain falls / when the rain falls / how did I find myself suddenly warm / in a perfect storm? // I come wearing nothing / to have or to hold / for I have discovered how / to never grow old / I’m lost when I’m waiting / and I’m joy when I give / so I have decided here and now to live // when the rain falls / when the rain falls / when the rain falls / how did I find myself suddenly warm / in a perfect storm? //
