From the recording Light

<p><span style="color: #000000;"><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;">Can we forgive the sins of others upon us? Can we find our way from the darkest corners of humanity into light? This is a question I have struggled with, having seen the pain and torment people are capable of inflicting upon each other while working with Child and Family Services. Light was written as a way for me to come to grips with the sadness of all those stories I heard, of all the tears I held in my heart, of such ragged desire to simply be loved. And perhaps it was written as a way to forgive.</span><br style="color: #997066; font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;" /><br style="color: #997066; font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;" /><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;">Light was resung at the end of a very long day of singing. We decided to just try a new vocal on it and did a couple of takes of it. I am pleased with softness of this version and can envision even a completely different arrangement which includes cello</span><br style="color: #997066; font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;" /><br style="color: #997066; font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;" /><span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;">Written in 2004</span></span><span style="color: #997066; font-family: Arial, Verdana; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px;"> <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/light/id315490253?i=315490617&uo=4" target="itunes_store"><img style="border: 0;" src="http://r.mzstatic.com/images/web/linkmaker/badge_itunes-sm.gif" alt="Light - Heartwood" /></a></span></p>
