“Simon's music is an extension of his spiritual path and presence. With a mindfulness that is rare and refreshing, he invites every listener into a reverent space made brighter and warmer by his care.”

This collection of songs has unfolded slowly, taking its own sweet time to come to fruition. These are songs born out of hard lessons that melted slowly into acceptance and gratitude, stories of beauty and compassion that sustain us through our hardest journeys. These are songs about coming home.
This album was recorded in my home on Marrowstone Island, on the coast of Washington state. The eagles, birds, waves, and other sound effects were all recorded here; they're fragments of my daily life, and a way of honoring of the land and the seasons that hold the music along with me.
