A year ago today.

It's been exactly one year since I went to Switzerland and the February chill makes me nostalgic for travel again and for the beautiful Swiss scenery that encapsulated my experience there. My dear friend Amanda, who came to visit me while I was living there, took this video of one of our adventures in my little town of Gais. I wrote this song on the tiny guitar that I scored from the free table down the street from my apartment in Cambridge. The song, "Long Time" has since changed and now I play it with a full band, but I am excited to have documentation of me singing it in its its' raw and original state. I hope you enjoy.

A civil connection

I can't stop listening to the Civil Wars. Not only does their music make me swoon..I am obsessed with their connection when they sing together. When they start a song, you can see them sink into this other world...far from viewer..far from themselves even. I feel like I'm peering into something really personal of theirs that I shouldn't be watching. They are fantastic. Too bad they are no longer a band. I would be a groupie for sure. These are two of their most beautiful videos.
