About Bridges - Built and Burned

Is Bridges a collection of songs with something to offend everyone?  I don't really know.  Some of the lyrics are pure fiction.  Some were provoked by events in the nation or on the planet.  I shared  Me and Brother Theophilus with a certain audience and asked them what they thought the song was about.  Responses ranged from "a bank robbery" to "drug smuggling" to a story about Theophilus as mentioned in the Christian bible.   This song is available for download at "Play it Forward" in exchange for a small donation.  Proceeds will go directly to the World Literacy Foundation, a non-profit organization that changes the lives of children through literacy.

2020 Covid Blues probably needs no explanation so I'll leave it at that.

You've heard the term "wedded bliss?"  Wedded Blister is a song about a long-term marriage that never really was.  

Blind Patriot was at least partly inspired by Einstein, who referred to nationalism as an infantile disease.  

Wishing Well is a story about the search and success of finding purpose and love to fill a hole in one's heart.    There is some kind of connection between that song and When You Look into My Eyes.

Jesus, Go Find Another Shore expresses disdain for hypocrisy.  

Another Sunny Day in La La Land was inspired by someone on Facebook who stated the answer to an arithmatic problem is a matter of opinion.  

Daddy's Farm recalls the storehouse of memories one builds during the passing of time that occupies the journey of a lifetime.  

Coming Around Again is about souls with history reconnecting .  

The Poet is a tribute to the countless number of people in the world who express profound thoughts but are rarely heard.  I wrote this song shortly after hearing a friend recite her poem at a poetry reading in a coffee house.  

And finally, there is Rain Dance.  It's a good thing to know how to do if you live in the high desert, the low desert, or the in between desert.

The entire album will be available by mid-2022.  Until then, only Brother Theophilus...and only by donation to a non-profit organization.
