Marcy Requist & Ron Wikso wrote Wall of Glass during the Covid-19 Quarantine of 2020. It originates from a first-hand understanding of what it’s like to be unable to visit a parent in a nursing home during the quarantine.
The story begins in a hospital nursery with a new father looking at his baby daughter through its protective “wall of glass” .
That little girl grows up, and now she is looking at her father through a “wall of glass” from outside his nursing home.
She is unable to visit him because of the quarantine.
The father has dementia, so there’s also a figurative wall that stands between him and his memories of his daughter.
You may recognize yourself, or someone you know within the story.
And, you’ll feel a hug of comfort from the message,”Have faith, this too shall pass.”
Happy 101st Birthday, Frank Sinatra! Motivation from Music History. Frank Sinatra would have celebrated his 101st Birthday today, and I can’t think of a more “motivating” master of his craft to kick off this week!
I am so grateful the final step in the production of our “Covers of Comfort” CD was in the capable hands of Jerry Tubb at Terra Nova Mastering in Austin, TX!
From the COVERS OF COMFORT CD, “If These Walls Could Speak” takes us back to the coziest places (and most wonderful memories) we can remember.
Reflecting with regret about missing a lost loved one is tenderly conveyed in the song “If I Had Only Known” from the COVERS OF COMFORT CD.
The last song on the COVERS OF COMFORT CD is in honor of a dear friend who battled like a champion against cancer, until she won her reward in heaven.
