Winds of Change
I wrote "Winds of Change" April 16, 2007, the morning after a terrible spring storm, and the wind was still wild. I was staying at a friend's lake house at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia. The electricity was off, and public radio on my battery-powered radio was a little scratchy out there, but I could make out reports coming from Virginia Tech, where 32 students and faculty died in a mass shooting. I kept working on the song, and by the time I finished, it had a whole new meaning for me. DOWNLOAD the Sheet Music PDF
