There Will Come Soft Rains – video

Meredith Wilder and I went up near the East Mountains of Albuquerque, NM near dawn one morning to shoot this beautiful video. It was cold.

I love that we made this video for a song about the certainty of soft rains in the desert.

I love that we found Sara Teasdale’s poetry when we did.

I love that Meredith began writing this song in my backyard as we were wrapping up recording this album of Sara Teasdale songs.

I love that we made this recording happen in such tumultuous times — perhaps a hopeful thought that we can find calm and peace once again.
