Slippers and Songs

Friday morning and I'm sitting in my messy little office - freezing, of course, but enjoying my gorgeous Chinatown slippers, which remind me of my sister Maggie because she bought each of us and our mother a pair when they were visiting in February. Here's a picture of our gorgeous feet in said slippers.

And since I'm in a bit of a rush and my cat, Rosie is crawling all over me and the keyboard, I'll just post a new lyric and call it a day. We're off to Paso Robles today - we're playing at a winery down there tomorrow night.

I'm reminding myself in this post that in the next one I want to talk about an amazing show I saw at the Hotel Utah last Friday. Noe Venable, back from New York for a couple of days, played one of the most beautiful sets of music I've every heard. Description later.

Til soon, Monica

Morning Comes

Morning Comes, she comes, I know
Always and still disarming
Beauty in her every guise
if I'll behold it

There is a space inside my heart
Tender, afraid and lonely
Just like a bird I long to fly

These bricks and stones are only
a poor and sad excuse
and all around they're falling
and underneath is truth

There is a tree that I've called home
Although at times quite barren
nevertheless it is my own
My own to cherish

Morning comes, she comes, I know
Even when darkness is profoundest
Into the light I am reborn
