An old friend has decided to change her life.
Her husband died a few years back and her family have moved away leaving her alone in a big house.
She has now taken the massive decision (at age 70) to sell up and make huge changes.
With a son in Canada and daughter in Ireland she has bought an apartment in Toronto and a static trailer-home on a holiday park in Cumbria and will be spending 6 months of the year at each.
This has led to her disposing of most of her possessions. One of these was a very fine guitar which she has gifted to me.
The least I could do was to write her a song using this guitar.
For the video I drafted in drummer Pete (Kentucky, USA) and bassist JeanLui (Cordoba, Spain) to flesh things out.

James that was great and IMHO your best to date.  That is a very sweet sounding guitar and you made it talk!
Super arrangement with a fascinating video.  Your vocal was very strong on this also.

Great work James.

Thanks Mario.
It's not often I write lyrics these days but there was a special reason with this one.
Appreciate your comments.

If you have a poem, I have a tune, and we exchange these, we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
