DO NOT LAMENT
Do Not Lament is not an order or a rule, but a gentle reminder. I felt myself drawn into a state of lamentation many times in the course of creating this album. Grief over my own personal tragedies was compounded by the tragedies of countless others as a global pandemic raged and the world seemed to spiral out of control. Despair was a natural reaction and sometimes I needed to wade into it. Do Not Lament is a reminder to seek the shore. This is an album of consolation, highlighting the beauty in joy, in sadness, and most of all in the moments when joy and sadness intersect.
