My own father took some 25 years to die - with us being called to his bedside at the hospital for a final goodbye many many times. With this in mind, I became very at home with the idea of death and dying and all its secrets. I never set out to write a lot of songs about this very subject, but here, all these years later, I have a complete collection (and more to come, I suspect). They are all written to give me, and hopefully you, a small element of peace in a time that can be such tumultuous upheaval. Presented to you with love and grace. x
