The thick layer of snow that gently caressed the city started to melt and as it did, this beautiful mist rolled off the silent mounds of snow and filled the air. Driving to the studio I couldn't help but feel a calm excitement as a subtle whirlwind of ideas drifted round my head. It's times like these that I love to just let go, sit down at a piano or keyboard and just let melodies come out of me, not judging them, not silencing them. I just play and make recordings like this one and review it a couple of days later to see if the melody still moves me. It's part of the process of writing a song, a lovely process that takes some time. A lovely process that softly fills the day.
