“What Are We Waiting For”

From the album ‘Note to Self’ by The Hillary Step
(available at www.thehillarystep.com)


“Sometimes I see through the eyes of a kid
Seeing you just as the bad things you did
Plotting my anger like points on a grid

Sometimes I see through the eyes of a man
Knowing that you did the best that you can
And love doesn’t always go as you plan”


These lyrics to me totally represent the duality of feeling that we all go through about our parents as we start to see them as human beings but still hold on to how we saw them when we were kids. I love the idea of plotting anger like points on a grid…very visual to me.

Most Peculiar

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

Here is a lyric from an early Paul Simon song:

He was a most peculiar man
That’s what Mrs. Riordan said and she should know
She lived upstairs from him
She said he was a most peculiar man

Thank you Paul Simon for reminding me to keep it simple. Simple is clear, accessible and in your case, often amazing.

Baby Song…finally!!

Monday, November 29th, 2010

I was wondering when it would happen. I got concerned that it never would. Then, after just putting her to sleep on Saturday night, it finally happened: a song about my little baby girl Abbey. It’s still under construction but here are the lyrics thus far. Stay tuned for the final product!

“A Little Closer”

You need me and how I needed you
You feed me as much as I am feeding you

Now everyday you get a little closer on your way….hey
Yeah everyday we are a little closer on our way

When you cry, I can think of nothing worse
When you smile, well I can see the universe

Now everyday you get a little closer on your way….hey
Yeah everyday we are a little closer on our way

First some laughter, then you roll on your side
What comes after, only you decide
Should your turn create a tailspin
We’ll be there to turn your right again

Now everyday you get a little closer on your way….hey
Yeah everyday we are a little closer on our way
