A 2-chord song inspired by a book called Grandmothers Counsel the World, about the 13 Grandmothers, indigenous medicine women whose work has been to save Mother Earth in her eleventh hour. The wisdom of each grandmother brought new light on ancient perspectives to my heart and mind. The first time Steve and I recorded this song was on the Oregon coast, deep inside a small ocean cave at low tide. The cave was only big enough to hold us and a few friends. We stood with our ukes as friends held candles in the dark and we sang this song inside the core of a rocky mountain at the ocean's edge. The sacred mission of the Grandmothers is described here.
