The River Song

While resting, camping, decompressing and enjoying the rivers of Oregon in 2009 …I was inspired to write this song. We visited the Deschutes, The Umpqua, The Rouge, The Falls and the Metolius river. Never was there a more soul soaking restorative time than during those two weeks. I sat along those waters which nursed away my fatigue and sadness. I had been grieving some intensely sad things that had happened in my life and in the life of those I loved during that particular river visit…and it was the gift from these rivers that eased my pain as it soaked my soul with its liquid love, its kisses of floating rain.
