I love the transition from the picking to the strumming. There's a lot of power in that section and it's a nice payoff and I think it's worth repeating, or augmenting with additional lyrics of the same vein to make it last a little longer.
Thanks, Jeremy! I'm definitely open to adding to the song, especially in that part you mentioned.
Glad you enjoyed it!

You remember well, Eric. I did send a portion of these lyrics in a message a while back. I don't really have them tied to any specific event/season in my life, but my time in Papua New Guinea certainly weaves a thread through most everything.
Thanks for the comment on YT as well. Cheers!

I'm impressed with your willingness to 'put it all out there' and be vulnerable.
Thanks a bunch, Steve. Yeah, I definitely feel a little more vulnerable with some of these originals I'm sharing, but the feedback is worth it to help me along the songwriting journey. Much better than not being true to myself, for sure. Still love doing the covers, though. Glad you enjoyed this one, though.
Thanks for watching!
