Hit reset

Let’s start the new year warm and fresh.

A little reflection,

A little nostalgia.

We’ve got William French today for some ambiance.

The way I think about it:

You’re standing out on the deck of a cabin.

It snowed last week, and the shores of the lake are blanketed in white.  Tonight the skies are clear, though, and there are stars.

There’s a silence that thickens the air, the kind in which your voice stops in front of you.  Heavy.

But the stars are still there.

And it’s like time has stopped.

[0:00]

It’s like time has stopped, but life hasn’t –

And that’s where this song begins.

It’s a heart beating, speeding, skipping.

It’s the waves lapping.

It’s the fresh air—

A cool breeze.

It’s gazing up and out, taking a deep breath, and—

[3:18]

There’s a light in the distance.

The lake shimmers silver.

And in the quiet, a warm hand.

Then the sun rises.

Pink inks across the pale blue sky.  The sun bursts.

Hit reset—

It’s a new day

And we’ve got William French’s kalimba keeping it bright and beautiful.

Take it in – it’s going to be a whirlwind.
