At the end of November, 2019, I left Chicago (my home for 24 years) and moved north to the Marquette, MI area. The pace of life in Chicago had gotten to be too much for me. I’m looking forward to finding some space to hibernate beside Lake Superior.
I wrote this tune on one of my first days in the area. I’m staying with some friends at the beginning of this hibernation. They live on the Chocolay River; a tributary of Lake Superior (which you can hear in the background).
I’m thankful some birds to join in on the second time through the tune. Is that a grey jay that lands on the tree? I have some work to do to learn their names.
Here’ the tune in a standard notation .pdf if you’d like to learn it yourself.
Thanks for listening!
