In this moment

‘In this Moment’  by Dean Snider

At the edges of infinity, just west of the Divide. In the gentle shade of serenity, pure beauty by my side

In the shadow of a titan, grand mass reaching for the sky. In this cathedral to divinity, winged raptors gliding by.

I want to stay… Please let me stay… Forever within this moment.

By her side, I will abide, remaining within this moment. And we will be forever free just you and me in this moment.

Leaning into the silence, the music of the air. A crescendo into gratitude, time without a care.

I want to stay… Please let me stay… Forever within this moment.

By her side, I will abide, remaining within this moment. And we will be forever free just you and me in this moment.

At the edges of infinity, just west of the Divide.

 

I wrote this song on a rocky beach. Specifically, this song came to life while I was looking out into Puget Sound from a narrow strip of public access beach next to Poverty Bay park in Federal Way WA. It was a peaceful day in the summer of 2017. Darlene and I had spent the previous day driving through the Cascades on White Pass, hiking and running a portion of the Pacific Crest Trail. We made a full and fabulous day of the trip across ‘the Divide,’ and it just needed to be captured for posterity.

This song is my attempt to do just that. It was recorded at Coffee Ring Studios in Walla Walla with Michael Simon recording, mixing and playing bass. Thank you, Michael! Let’s play together again soon!

Perhaps it is just me but I enjoy a January glance back to the days of summer. I hope you do too!

Peace.

Dean
