Great Dream From Heaven

I wrote words for a melody by Joseph Spence who played guitar and sang on Andros Island, Bahamas in the mid 20th century.

Great Dream From Heaven
words 1991 Randy Sutherland
music Joseph Spence/traditional

listen to Sarah and I sing and play it here:

Great Dream From Heaven

I had a great dream from heaven last night
all of God's children were happy and bright
all of God's children walked in the light
in a great dream from heaven last night

every voice was heard when it cried
and every teardrop was counted and dried
every heart glowed from inside
in a great dream from heaven last night

Why did they decide to clone sheep? You can't tell one from another now. Now penguins, ya they oughta chose penguins. "I would not feel so all alone. Everybody must get cloned."

It wasn't nearly as sinister as the photo makes out but it was bit spooky seeing no upcoming events listed. I'm ashamed to say I had to think for a minute to figure out what a 'pool for meat' was. A game? A typo?

Valentine's photos are here and here.

Guelph Covered Bridge

In 1992 400 volunteers from the Timber Framers Guild worked near the confluence of the Eramosa and Speed Rivers building this covered bridge using an 1880's design. There is a video of the " 120' pedestrian lattice-covered bridge over the Speed River in Guelph, Ontario. Dramatic scenes of some 400 people raising by hand the two large side trusses of the bridge, assembling the roof, and then winching and pushing the completed bridge into position over the river. Scenic views of the finished structure."

Snowy Branches

Winter finally came. Bare yesterday - today a wet snow coating. Along the Royal Recreational Trail beside the Eramosa River we found this quiet cove and thought we'd gone down the rabbit hole.

The Kissing Bridge

Today we walked across The Kissing Bridge over the Grand River in West Montrose. Built in 1880 it is the last remaining covered bridge for vehicle traffic in Ontario. There is a trail which runs from here to Guelph.
