The edge of my longing



I traveled to the edge of my longing to find a curved horizon, a land of gold,

a place where the longing was no longer mine,

light from all sides, no shadows to hide,

yet try as I might, light too bright for my eyes.


I traveled to the edge of my longing to find

the limit of time, so young, so old,

like the foggy veil in the story that's told,

wrapped by the centuries, cracked by the blind,

I traveled to the edge of my longing to find

a curved horizon, a land of gold.

 

You, sent out beyond your recall, go to the limits of your longing. Embody me. Nearby is the country they call life. -Rilke

Although I am no longer actively blogging, I am currently working on developing my career as an orchestral/cinematic composer under the stage name Between the Rains. You can find all my work at SoundCloud or a few selections on YouTube.

If you produce any form of media, I also write very affordable stock music for Pond5. (Use this referral link to view my profile and get 20% off your first purchase of ANY stock songs, photos, or videos from Pond5 - whether or not you buy my work!)

Also, if you need custom music produced for film or video games, head on over to the Contact page and let me know!
