Over the years, one of my favorite past times for reflection and inspiration has become going for walks. I love to take the time to get away and de-stress. It’s great for both the heart and soul.
About 4 years ago, I spent one afternoon here in Nashville on our Greenway at Percy Priest. I remember the day being gray with no blue skies anywhere. Regardless, though, a beautiful day for a walk. I go 6 miles and averaging about 20 minutes a mile. Not a really fast walk. But for me, it’s a time to get out, relax, and to enjoy the finer things in life.
Anyway, when I had gotten back to my place, I sat down and hit record on my keyboard. Then this song came from out of nowhere. It came out of the blue. The walk was to be just that; another walk. No intention of writing a song. Usually when I want to, I can’t.
What’s amazing is that 95% of the song came out at once. Only a couple minor mistakes! After I stopped recording, it stunned me! The style differed from anything else I’ve composed before. So much different that for a while I couldn’t decide whether to use this song for my album.
Even-though I wrestled with this for months, it not only made it on the album, but eventually became the title track! From the way this song originated, to my guest interaction on my “About” page, it all seemed to fit. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
