bomb shelter

Most of religion is dedicated to creating a bomb shelter and calling it hope.

O Great Ocean

Some months back i composed this piece of music, while Jim Loney was a captive in Iraq. Knowing Dan well, and feeling deeply for him, I wrote this out of the sense of longing that I experienced from being with him.

Now it seems some kind of miracle that Jim returned, and that he has, through a great inner strength, and through the strength of his own strong community, really fully integrated back into a very full life.

It took me some time to reach a point where, well, with the means at my disposal, I felt I did my best..

A tribute to Jim Loney and Dan Hunt:
