Subject: RE: Micca's got the blues: Help him out...
Micca, we never got to talk about songwriting on you recent trip, darn it! Maybe next year at the Getaway, we could have a songwriter's circle and not a workshop... or a workshop AND a circle. People care about you, which I'm sure you know. Also, quite a few of us have either been 'round the bend or had our turn signals on. This song may not be your cup of... whatever came out of that flask, but it's just for you.

Chasing the Light
(c)2006 Jeri Corlew

Here's what I wish for an unhappy friend
Only that sadness and strife do end
Banish the clouds of another dim day
Find one patch of light to guide your way

And whether 'tis sunlight through autumn jewelled trees
That dapples and dances on fiery leaves
Or the moon that laughs on midnight green dew
Sometimes you find light, sometimes it finds you

But it never remains in the same place
You must chase it to feel it again on your face
And if darkness is where you now have to be
Gather strength for the hunt, 'til you can burst free

For chasing the light is a difficult thing
You must look anywhere it may shimmer and sing
But here is a thing that I'm sure you know --
It's the dark that makes the light dance so
