Lyrics
Rushing

People rushing,
like sled drivers mushing
o'er cold hard terrain,
at a pace that's insane.

Playing the game,
looking for fame,
adventure or lust,
whatever's a must.

Rushing, acquiring,
without deep inquiring.
Their gain is their loss.
A gray albatross.

Won't you wear that bed around my neck ...

Concise, intense, hard-packed .. I like it.

But what's that albatross doing flying over the cold hard tundra? Must be lost : )

Will you be posting more from the collection?

Two of the Indwellings orchestral pieces are being performed this month in the State of Washington by a small chamber orchestra.

A song bird appears in my poem "Spirit Painting." Much better than an albatross.

Very nice performance!
I love the way you are singing this song, Richard, thanks so music for performing it. It brings them to life in a way a digital recording could never do.

Your voice
How do you do. I would like to contact you concerning recording some songs I have written. I have not "been approved" for my first selection of downloads to this MacJam site yet. But once that goes through perhaps we can collaborate.
