I was going through my Facebook notifications in November 2018, when I noticed that Frank Wallace had come through a difficult year of health issues. Through Frank’s postings over the years, I noted that we shared similar interests, like writing for guitar and voice, or being inspired by medieval music, so I was happy to hear of his return to health. Having had a year with some health issues myself; I was glad that both of us were still active and relatively healthy.

This piece was inspired by a quote from Solar Storms – one of Linda Hogan’s novels: “tears have a purpose, they are what we carry of the ocean, and perhaps we must become the sea, give ourselves to it, if we are to be transformed.” One of the greatest living poets, Hogan can in one phrase dissolve the barriers between animate and inanimate; past and future; or interior and exterior. I have written two song cycles using her poems: Truth of Matter and Rounding the Human Corners, * both of these are for low voice and guitar.
