Walking Distance

For Father's Day 2013, I received the book, As I Knew Him, by Anne Serling. It is a moving tribute to her father, Rod Serling, whom I greatly admired.

Anne’s book addresses the deep grief she experienced following his death at the young age of 50. The book was the inspiration for this song, named after a classic Twilight Zone episode featuring Gig Young. The song speaks to the grief that all of us experience when we lose someone dear to us, and it offers a perspective that can calm our anxious spirit. I forwarded a copy of the song to Anne, who liked it very much. I hope you will too.

Two Wounded Warriors

Ryan, The All Glory Project

This song was inspired by The All Glory Project, a unique program that raises money for horse-assisted therapy programs that help veterans restore their physical and emotional health. I know you will be touched as you learn more about the project and those whose lives have been impacted. If you are touched by this song, please do what you can to support the All Glory Project. It was an honor to be able to meet Elizabeth Shatner and share this song with her. You can find more information on the All Glory Project homepage.

This song was written for a good friend who may launch a non-profit organization to provide free air transport for people who have serious medical issues. The song is about how a helping hand and caring friend can lift our fallen spirit to a place where we can live above our fears. Take a listen, then go pick someone up who has fallen.
