I woke up with this song in my head. It was perfect accompaniment on my morning walk with my dog, Nick. The only thing missing was an ocean view.
I discovered Xavier Rudd last April when honeyhoney opened for him at Neighborhood Theatre. This was another artist of, listened to and bought every album available.
This song is just a reminder to me to take a deep breath and enjoy the moment even if I can’t be taking a deep breath and enjoying the moment on a shore somewhere.
So as the lyric says: “Can you come to this garden, share with me this beautiful day, listen to the birds sing softly, lay with me and drift away. Follow me to the ocean, share with me this beautiful day, listen to the waves break gently, lay with me and drift away.”
