A Wild Earth Shebrew Outtake
This song was recorded sometime between 2005 & 2007
It was originally slated as Kaddish on Wild Earth Shebrew, my debut album of morning prayers. When it came close to time for release, the song felt too intimate to share, so I kept it off the album. I recently re-encountered this recording, and it touches me to the core. Grateful to share it here.


Grandma you live in me
You shine you shine inside my heart
As I journey on this earth
Your radiant wisdom I seek to impart

Grandma you live in me
You are inside all my moments of grace
As I journey on this earth
Your resilient spirit I seek to embrace

Grandma you live in me
You dance inside that sparkle in my eye
As I journey on this earth
May I stand as strong as you
And may I fly as high


released May 5, 2009
