Homeless

In the last few days, watching the news almost constantly, Marie and I have been overwhelmed by the tragic situation in New Orleans and beyond. My dear wife, whom I have sometimes called a News Junkie Empathy Sponge, may need therapy soon. There isn’t much I can say or do to help her as she frets over the tragedy of Katrina. I hold her hand, rub her head, take her to lunch. Our hearts are broken, and we fear for our fellow man. We can only hope that as the days go by, there will be better news, as thousands of people arrive to help. We send our love and prayers to all of the homeless, and others, helping with the disaster relief.

Myself, I hear words and phrases, coming to me from who knows where, words that someone who is experiencing the disaster first hand might say. Today, my friend Tim and I recorded a song I wrote yesterday, with those words and phrases. Click here to listen to “Home Again” in Hi-Fi (broadband)
