I Love You Light

A long while back, I heard a folk concert broadcast on NPR. A song by the artist David Crossland stuck in my mind. Titled Minots Light, it tells the tale of one keeper of the Minot's Ledge Lighthouse who used the light to broadcast the words "I Love You" to his wife.

Last week I finally broke down and bought the CD. (This is how I make purchases, I have to think about them for about six months.) The song is just as beautiful as I remembered it. Made for perfect background music as I walked along Pebble Cove Beach on a sunny Easter Sunday.

If you get a chance, pick up some of David's songs or albums -- he's releasing a live CD soon. He's got a beautiful voice and I'm a big fan of supporting independent musicians.
