1. About Time - The tremendous spirit of volunteerism as I’ve observed for years. Also, a little backhand way of saying that while I have wanted to tackle this project for years, it simply took a pandemic to get at it!
2. The Conversation - A bittersweet tale of missed opportunity...and getting phone numbers!
3. Treading Water - This song had an unusual genesis after a few conversations with a friend discussing an organization that he belongs to, Retrouvaille, whose purpose is to help restore struggling marriages.
4. Flip Down the Line - Initially written as an instrumental for the group Parallax, but Jenny saw a lyrical opportunity to talk about choosing the road less travelled.
5. Today as I Walk - Random thoughts of concern and hope for future sustainability
on a planet where more such thoughts should occur.
6. Babe - An homage to a dear friend who passed away recently, and to her amazing family.
7. Take a Chance - A retrospective of an early “growth opportunity” incident in my life.
8. Mayana - Composed initially as another instrumental for Parallax, Jenny adapted
the melody and incorporated lyrics to express our joy for identical twin grandbabies born into the family. Some vocal improvisation by Baby Ana and Baby Maya.
9. We Got to Go - A walk along the path of just such a relationship that is about to fracture, and possibly wisely.
10. It Was Jamaica - A fantasy about a getaway, written in the dead of a northern winter.
11. Funk 51 - Another instrumental written for Parallax a few years ago.
12. The Food Song - A song about a subject near and dear to my heart… and stomach!
13. Perfect Day - Written on a day when, for no reason, I was struck by the beauty and wonder of a 24-hour day-in-the-life.
