Going back about a million years, I'll take a stab at "Waltzing Imelda" for the occasion - a numerical musical min-opera about the year I was doing my taxes while hearing about Imelda Marcos's collection of 6,000 pairs of shoes. Somehow the numbers got juxtaposed.
Fact checkers, get out your calculators.

And I'll sing a song for the season written years back with Anne Hills.

"Spring From Darkness Into Light"
This song came about because of Linn Sorge, a teacher, advocate, musician, weaver and friend who happens to be blind. She never ceases to amaze and challenge. When Anne's mother lost her sight Linn gave her "insight" into ways she could make her mom's life easier as well as a deeper understanding of what it feels like to live in darkness ~ and in light.

Let us sit and talk together, let me help you understand
Since I know that you are reaching let me take your hand
I can't see you as you see me but I see with inner sight
It is quiet, it is thoughtful, it is beautiful and bright


CHORUS
Day or night, night or day
We move forward either way
Night or day, day or night
Spring from darkness into light

Some of us see shadows, dim or undefined
Some see color, some see nothing, many kinds of blind
I am reading with my fingers, I am seeing with my ears
And my heart is always searching for answers, just like yours


CHORUS

When I'm walking in the garden and I smell the fresh, green ground
I can tell which birds are singing, do the colors match their sound? Are we more alike than different, can we help each other see
Build a bridge of common vision, you to me

Let us sit and talk together, will you help me understand
Since you know that I am reaching, will you take my hand
You can't see me as I see you, but we see with inner sight
It is profound, and it is powerful, it is beautiful and bright

CHORUS
