I finally got some quiet time to revisit your album in entirety to get a feel for the whole body of work rather than on a one song per week basis. . While Hericots Verts had been my early favorite I grew into Morning Star. I did not read its' prelude until after listening to the song. I was stunned by the common thread in our paths. I spent my best summers at my grandparents' cottage on Balsam Lake and in visits by boat to Coboconk for ice cream cones. Now I am living in the countryside outside of Cincinatti, Ohio .. up the road from a place called Union Army Cemetary which is the final resting place of a lot of great grandfathers . At some point I will visit that place to view the mossy stones above those resting there below. I suspect I will find a lot of Irish names. Wow.
