Description
I can't thank Freddy and Yves enough for their teamwork to realize a final version of this song, which is dear to my heart! Our little group, FLY, took on Glimpses and brought it to a whole new level. Freddy and Yves are truly a joy to work with.
Their talent, kindness, respect and inspiration make me feel so lucky... enjoy.

This is a song about my Mother. She has Multiple Sclerosis and I often find it hard to remember her healthy. These are my memories...

Lyrics
Sometimes, there are glimpses of
Mere glimpses
Sometimes, there are glimpses of
Mere glimpses

It could be
The curl in your hair

It could be
The shape of your hands
With the ring
On your finger

Or it could be
The smell of your clothes
Bounce and swim
Through the tides

Or it could be
The rappity-tap of telephone cords
A swamp
With many pillows

Oh, we were just
Innocent faces
With innocent minds

Oh, we were just
Under false tenses
With false reprieve

Oh, we were just
Wrapped up in laces
With smiles and sharp cries

Oh, we were just
Small and dependant
With wide, open eyes

Sometimes, there are glimpses of
Mere glimpses
Sometimes, there are glimpses of
Mere glimpses

Satisfying
Great to hear your wonderful vocals gracing this heartfelt song again, Laura. The three of you really do fly here :-) Very satisfying arrangement - really like the sax work and Freddy's percussion. Congratulations to "the band". Take care, Peter.

Sweet sadness...
Beautiful voice with sweet harmonies that builds to add a sense of longing and drama. This song is very touching and tender. It brings a tear to my eye for the memories of my parents. A good thing though, because we want to remember the fond things about them...

Great collaboration indeed. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thank you so much for stopping by to listen and comment. I think that music is a great way of capturing special moments and memories. As Loob points out below, it is also a form of therapy to work on a song such as this. Having the pleasure to collaborate with Freddy and Yves made this song especially wonderful.

Yes it is sad to have these things
happen to loved ones, but it's also a form of therapy to put your feelings and thoughts into a song. Laurie knew exactly what she wanted when we started this project. She kinda humored me in some testing I wanted to do, and then it was clear that what she had wanted from the beginning was the way to go on this. The testing itself clarified this, and further down the road it became crystal clear to me what she has known she wanted all along. Not just anyone would have humored me on this. Laurie did. What a talented dear lady you are listening to in this mix. A one of a kind person. Thanks for letting us work with you on this Laurie. Yves and I are enjoying the journey very much! Friends for life. FLY!

I like the way the instruments accentuate the words. Heartfelt vocal. A beautiful and perhaps cathartic song. Excellent work from all involved.

nice...
your lilting and light voice carries this song, against a backdrop of carefully woven fabric of beats and wind instruments.
