October 2003
As I leave for the US tour, I'm looking forward to rehearsing up some of the new songs from 'December'. Most of the other guys are only just hearing them for the first time, so I'm asking them to play some of the parts I did on the record. The response so far from the people in the industry has been excellent, lets hope it can reach a wider audience this time. My own personal favourites are 'In the Bleak Mid Winter' and 'December Snow'. But most of all, I hope that you like it.
This will be a busy few months for me as straight after Christmas, having travelled all over promoting "December', I go to Zurich for a series of 'Gaia' concerts in January. Do you think it will be cold there?
Oh well, off to Florida then!
Perhaps some languid summer day,
When drowsy birds sing less and less,
And golden fruit is ripening to excess,
If there's not too much sun nor too much cloud,
And the warm wind is neither still nor loud,
Perhaps my secret I may say,
Or you may guess.
from "Winter; My Secret" by Christina Rossetti
