From the recording Waiting for the Perseids

I wrote this tune after talking to my dear friend, Bill Olson, about ham radio operation during the Perseids meteor shower. The idea of all these people waiting by their radio sets hoping to catch a burst of communication aided by a meteor struck me as a great metaphor for the human condition.....waiting all alone for a long time and reaching out through the darkness hoping for a connection....or maybe I just like the idea of hanging out under the stars in the middle of the night....You can read the sheet music here.
