BETWEEN - 11-27/28-12

I step out of the car
I don’t know where we are
Somewhere between a planet
A planet and a star
I never dreamed I’d end up
in a place like this

The Multnomah Falls is up the Columbia Gorge
Somewhere between Portland and Pendleton
Sometimes when I go there
I really don’t know where I am

I step out on the bridge
Sun sparkles in the mist
Somewhere between the water and the world
Never dreamed I’d wake up in a world like this

When you’re sleeping in your car
It doesn’t matter where you are
Somewhere between a planet and a star
Never dreamed I’d wake up in a place like this

And then there’s Crater Lake and
the Sequoias and the San Joaquin Valley
And the coast of California
and the Mojave Desert…

And ALL of that... I remember when my boys first came to CA. They were late teens, and early 20s. I took them to see Sunset cliffs. If you don't know it, it's easy to imagine: a sweeping vista of sky, sea and pelicans on a postcard. We got out, walked around... they said nothing, somber faces, withdrawn. "I step out of my car/ I don't know where we are..." It seemed the oddest thing at the time, but I knew this is what they were feeling. This song carries the magnificence of arrival in a beautiful new world. Or when my mother drove my sister & I from OK to CA to join my dad during the Korean War. Somewhere in New Mexico along Rt 66 we pulled over to sleep for a few hours. I woke up at dawn before anyone else, to discover the windshield of the car was filled with an enormous glowing ball. At age 6, I had never seen anything like this sun. I hardly knew what it was. This song was written for such moments. A beautiful, beautiful song. And those guitars in the middle are liquid light. Thank you for thinking of me in relation to this. I will always feel a tiny bit it belongs to me.

Now we reach that wanderlust that temporary resident soul, that hides in all of us travelers.
