It’s a cold, wet, miserable day today, but nowhere near as bad as it was a year ago today as my wife and I sat and cried, feeling more helpless than we ever have as our friends and family in Lyons suffered one of the greatest losses any of us could imagine. This was the place, after all, where we got married (Oct 25, 2009 @ Oskar Blues).
We feared for our friends. Fortunately, all escaped with only the loss of property – all safe – all secure in the love of the community of musicians we call family. Enion Pelta-Tiller expresses it perfectly when she sings “…feelin’ sick down to my toes, worryin’ ’bout the ones I love.”
I would normally have waited until Monday’s blog post to share this video with you, but with the weather being as it is today, and the pain still holdin’ on, today is the best day to share this new song from the upcoming Taarka album due out in November. It is, indeed, a day to remember.
We love you guys,
Mr & Mrs Goat
