Josh Garrels, “Over Oceans”

Here’s a young artist from Portland who’s marketing plan includes allowing easy access to his music online. I’m fond of this song because it makes me think of my trip across the ocean to see my sister who lives in Australia.  We were reunited after being apart on different continents for 15 years. I surprised her when I showed up at her little acreage near Ipswich.  Tears flowed in buckets. It was so good to see her and her family again.

The photograph above is an infrared image I shot while on a short trip to Arlie Beach, Australia.

Over Oceans
I remember when all the trees knew your name
Flames from fire flies would light our way
Have I lost all that which I never knew I had found
Searching for you on the wings
On oceans to you
All my time comes to you
How long has it been
Flying home again
Will we be the same as we were once before
Remember like children the stories of old
Your hand was in mine be the firelight when we danced
Mighty wind will carry me
