Note by Note: Crazy In Need | No. 8  | February 10, 2019

“Love is the most universal, the most tremendous, and the most mysterious of the cosmic forces.”   ~Pierre Teilhard de Chardin 

Who and what do you love to your core? 

How do you put that love into words...or music…or art…or food…or projects…or donations…or…? 

You might say everything we do is motivated somehow by love. While romantic love commands most of the spotlight, our lives are full of all sorts of deep love. 

Throughout the centuries, people have attempted to describe the full-on, full-body experience of love. Isn’t it delicious when someone else’s depiction of love speaks eloquently to and for us? We can’t get enough. 

But even then, we’re only scratching the surface. Countless poems, songs, paintings, sculptures, photographs try to describe the indescribable…try to tame the vastness…try to capture a piece of the infinite. 

Annie Leibovitz’s Yoko Ono & John Lennon 

Mary Oliver’s Wild Geese 

Bob Dylan/Adele’s Make You Feel My Love 

Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings 

Camille Claudel’s Vertumnus and Pomona 

Roberto Begnini's Life is Beautiful  

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s one of my attempts. Crazy In Need was co-written with Jan Linder-Koda (over Skype no less!) and recorded in Los Angeles. Read more

Latest Track

Will You Stand with Me starts with the truth that “Anyone can take the wheel when the see is calm and the coast is clear.” But who do we become when the “sea gets rough and the chips are down and the gig is up”? This is a song of gratitude for those who stand with us and a song of challenge that we might stay strong as we accompany each other in difficult days.
