Non-fiction often tells a story more compelling than fiction. That’s why I enjoy documentaries so much. I remember thinking about Maine in the winter and the founder of Burt’s Bees when writing this song. It’s a creative loneliness…pure in a sense. That deep feeling of experience and being alone and telling the story.  The stories […]

The Whole Hog

I don’t believe everything happens for a reason. I do know that God works everything out for good.
