about

19/25 ~ Was going through the photos and saw one taken of my grandma Anna. An older shot but not as far back as the Porky the Wonder dog days. I only ever knew one grandma growing up. Mr. Bert’s mom died when he was fourteen. Flashbacks. I’m back in the present. The window’s open and it’s a beautiful sunny day. Butterflies and small birds are flocking around the newly painted red birdhouse. I’m such an artiste`.. And wouldn't you know it, the smell of freshly baked bread wanders in from down the street. Hello! I'm three or four years old again. Watching grandma roll out her bread dough humming an old french song while she’s doing it. I don't know. She has a way. An inspirational song is how I see this. Your heart is your home. Your big stone house. We love and miss people and get left behind. But look around you. Find that table made of Oak. Soulmate, twin flames, kindred spirits. Not always what we expect. Give thanks. Find contentment. And stone to build with. Be at peace while you're here. Your heart is your hearth, I hope it rages on .. xoRJ

lyrics

When they hear the iron bell
The workers in the field
Know it's time to meet at the big stone house
You can hear it peal
Rings across the hills
Time to find your seat at the big stone house

A table made of oak
Probably polished in the sunlight
By hands that enjoyed a job well done
Silver dishes shine
Bread is freshly baked
No one's turned away at the big stone house

Oh the day's been very hot
So they're slow comin' in
Still they make their way to the big stone house
They feel the cooling water
Fever goes away
Another perfect day at the big stone house

A table made of oak
Probably polished in the sunlight
By hands that enjoyed a job well done
Silver dishes shine
Bread is freshly baked
No one's turned away at the big stone house

All the birds and beasts know
When it's time to meet
Someone rings the bell at the big stone house
When you hear it chime
You'll want to go and see
Hear the joy and mirth at the big stone house

A table made of oak
Probably polished in the sunlight
By hands that enjoyed a job well done
Silver dishes shine
Bread is freshly baked
No one's turned away at the big stone house

When they hear the iron bell
The workers in the field
Know it's time to meet at the big stone house
You can hear it peal
Rings across the hills
Time to find your seat at the big stone house
Time to find your seat at the big stone house

No one's turned away at the big stone house

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
