about

Inspired by some healing work on myself that I have been doing, well, for a pretty long time now. How can we learn to know and appreciate all of the different parts of ourselves, the different ages, the nesting Russian dolls that are truly all of us? How can we draw on their strengths at the right time in the right way, and in a way that feels good and elevates us? Wouldn't it be great to feel a sense of inner belonging more often?

lyrics

I could tell you quite a sad story
about a boy who grew up all alone, felt so alone.
And I could fill it full of all the details your hungry ears might want,
but I won't.

'Cuz that yearning made a boat he created
and it floats!

And love will hold you up,
overflow your cup.

He was a teenager and felt so lonely
for himself and he sought resonance
for some reflection of his inner being,
his invitation to the dance.

And the beat kicks in the groove.
Awkward legs begin to move.

And love stirs lonely hearts
to risk playing their parts.

Now he is a man, all grown up
with bills and deadlines he can't quite recall agreeing to.
But sometimes something stirs a longing, a longing
or crazy legs at play and unsailed seas.

Ship in a bottle on the shelf -
smash it and sail back to yourself!

And love will bring you home.
You won't feel alone.

My heart bursts with happiness, my voice fills with joy -
nothing is lost here, I am still that boy
who ran free and wandering, arms open wide,
touching and welcoming in life's delight.

So let's sing reunion songs!
Everyone belongs.
This is my reunion song -
now all parts of me belong.
