I want that love that moved the mountains.
I want that love that split the ocean.
I want that love that made the winds tremble.
I want that love that roared like thunder.


A Note from Jamie
I’ve been to the mountains.
I’ve been to the sea.

August was a time to get away. My brother Willem and partner Diane hosted me in Denver and took me to the Rockies: elevation 12,000 ft!  Anne Hills came to town, and then we drove cross-country, with her friend Al Power, with stops in Rochester, NY, Bethlehem, Pa, and then a sunny weekend at the Jersey Shore. 

Anne and Al completed “Sanctuary City”, a song for my In Old Chicago show.  I’ll preview it on Sunday, Sept 12 at our final Roots in the Garden concert on Pratt Blvd in Chicago.  This month filmmaker Jeff Bivens and I finish shooting the Roots in Ireland promo video.  A full plate to be sure!
Peace in this challenging time, Jamie
