"We could be the healin'
When you're feeling all alone
We could be the reason
To find the strength to carry on
In a world that's so divided

I will knit on a boat ⛵️, I will knit with a goat 🐐

This time of year it can be challenging not to get caught up in the buying, doing, and consuming frenzy. In a culture where more is more we can easily get lured in and become fixated on what we want, what we don’t have, or what we feel is lacking rather than what we do...

On the title track Hall sings:

The dark within my dark
Is where I found my light
The fruit became the doorway
And now it’s open wide
The fruitful darkness
Is all around us

Interestingly this gem filled album was not named until about half way through its recording when H...
