My love of music came first. Closing the bedroom door to my adolescent man-cave, I would grasp the corners of my LP album covers, admiring the art. Then I opened it to find the lyrics inside. Discovery in words. While the music has always come first in my world, I created this blog to honor the verse and the poetry. My music in the background.

Every Grain of Sand
Marking the sense of loss, each grain of abrasive from a handful sand
I am left to take stock, what is left in my possession
Greater is its detail under the loop
Crystalline beauty found in every goblet
In it the power to scour saddened layers exposing the heartwood
