"In the Wake" is best a metaphor for life... There are those who look ahead of the vessel... the captains, crew, or just those along for the ride, and those who glance behind, at the wake, perhaps a bit too often. I am such a person...

My journey thus far, has been one of great joy and great loss. This album merely speaks to their echo. "In the Wake" of all that has happened then, I give you these words

Oh to be the wise and careful captain
With eyes unerring straight ahead
But how foolish, I instead,
Keep the watch that time has fled.

In the wake of lives and dreams
And chapters long since turned,
I feel a sadness so complete
For all I still so yearn.

But of tomorrow then, I ask,
What do we really know?
For now, I'll paint the colors of today
And dream in those of yesterday.

For now and again, they will appear,
Oh so tender and so dear,
The moments past, their nectar, sweet,
And now, I lay me down to sleep.

        A.S. 11/17/10

... In closing, know that as the vessel continues amidst life's uncharted waters, and journeys forward, so do I, despite myself, and the wake recedes.
