Encased in Time

Encased in Time

Encased In Time is a song cycle composed, performed, and recorded over a long weekend in December 2008. I had broken my back in July 2007 and had been in a body brace for over a year waiting to heal enough to be eligible for vertebral fusion surgery. I had just learned from the doctors, that I could have the surgery in March 2009, and was sad to have to wait another 3 months, but glad to see a light at the end of a long dark tunnel. Erica went to visit our daughter Sasha in North Carolina, and I decided to try going into the studio to let some of the emotion come out. Here’s the result:

I did have the surgery in March 2009, and it went very well, and I was able to fully regain my mobility and returned to a full healthy life!
