Many years ago a fellow songwriter was suffering from a medical condition. She was much too young when she passed away and I spent a lot time afterwards trying to understand what it might have been like to reach out to the place she felt was on the other side. She described it as a place of peace and love. The closest I could imagine was the feeling of reaching out to someone you love in a time of need. Reaching beyond what is known, stretching into the unknowable place that is beyond your reach, hoping you will find hands on the other side, reaching out to catch you.
