New Grand Canyon Music Video (with bare feet, of course)
Three years ago a friend forwarded me an email about a singer/songwriter who was looking for poems about birds for a themed concert he was planning.
I sent some lyrics to Mr. Bo Brown of Rogersville, Missouri, and he was kind enough to write and record music to my poem about California thrashers. He even included the song in his bird concert, which was such fun to imagine.
On a whim a year or so ago, I sent Bo another set of lyrics I had written about rivers/water/bare feet (inspired, of course, by time at Grand Canyon where the “big river”–the Colorado–is joined by so many beautiful side creeks).
The man is a song-writing wizard, and within a few days he emailed back a recording of him singing “River Song” . . . which I (finally! It’s been on my list of things to do for a while) paired with images from this past year’s worth of Grand Canyon visits.
I hope it inspires listeners/viewers to take their shoes off and find some summer water.
