Lyrics

Omnia Sol goes beyond the obvious subject of a farewell or "song of parting," although it certainly has that as an integral aspect. From a deeper perspective, it is a reflection on the constant passage of events and people in life's continuum, and the human need to anchor words of love and commitment in the hearts of those who have been pillars along life's way. In that manner, the ever-changing chaos of life seems to find a piece of solid ground in the simple assurance that one is hardly alone; rather, life is a mosaic made up of visual images, conversations, laughter, love, sorrow, and experiences too numerous to count - all as a result of one's interaction with other human beings from the moment of birth. One's life has an inseparable kinship with others. The metaphor for that kinship in this piece is "omnia sol" (or "everywhere light" [sun]), and that kinship or light is perpetuated by our daily investing and leaving a bit of ourselves in every soul we encounter. Though we mature and "move on," part of us is "staid' in the hearts and minds of those we chance to meet. Danielle Barnes is the accompanist on this performance.

Cabaret Postponed!

As Hurricane Irma bears down on Fort Myers, we are going to postpone the cabaret so that families can make preparations for the storm or evacuate. We will look for a make-up date soon. Be safe and take this threat seriously.
