Happy Valentine

Dear Friends,
Happy Valentines Day!
May we celebrate in the LOVE that surrounds us always – within and without.
I wanted to let you know that I will be releasing a new album in two weeks but until then –  – Here are a few new videos for you. The first is of one of the most popular songs I’ve written called ‘Come’.  The lyrics are from a poem by the 13th century Persian Sufi mystic poet  Jalal ad-Din Rumi. I am joined on this video by Lucia Lilikoi who is a fabulous singer.  This song is featured on my ‘Garden Of Mystic Poets’ recording.

come, come whoever you are 
wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving 
come, come whoever you are 
this isn’t a caravan of despair 
it doesn’t matter if you’ve broken your vow 
a thousand times before 
still and yet again, come again come 
and yet again come 
           Rumi  (English translation is by Coleman Barks).

The second video is a called “This Love”. It is a spirited, firey love song to the divine. 
I wrote most of the lyrics decades ago but it was set to different music that I ended up using for another song. I recently resurrected ‘This Love’ with new music. 

I hope you will enjoy these offerings.
