1. Distant Shore

From the recording A Sunday Drive

This song has a special meaning for me. My mother emigrated to this country from Ireland, alone, when she was a young woman in the late 1940s. My family moved around throughout my childhood. I lived in 7 states by the time I was 15. Distant Shore is a song where you know what is left behind, but you are both resigned and committed to go to a new destination.
