Uprising Up North


Today I’m simply sharing a photo, a song and some lyrics.

I went to see the Sam Roberts Band at the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival last night. Sam Roberts is the kind of artist that inspires you to “kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight”, to quote another Canadian musician (Bruce Cockburn).

He chose to honor Indigenous Day by singing his song “Uprising Down Under”. Below is posted a link to that song, with lyrics.

I hope, if the darkness threatens to swallow up the light you have left, these words and music can be an encouragement, and a reminder that you are never alone.

A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 55: Album Art Gallery, part 3


Here is part 3 of my Album Art Gallery. To quote the great philosopher and theologian Stevie Wonder:

Music is a world within itself
With a language we all understand
With an equal opportunity
For all to sing, dance and clap their hands

“Sir Duke” from Songs in the Key of Life
