The Inspiration for “New Moon”
I wrote “New Moon” in one evening when I was processing through some heartache and feelings of polarity from some choices I had made with my heart. In tears, I had called my friend Barry. Needing a change of scenery and some alone space, Barry invited me to hang out at his house while he went out. I arrived, guitar in hand and tears falling. As I experienced sanctuary that evening, I realized that the feelings of being cared for, heard, and understood by my dear friend were what I yearned for in romantic love, which was the opposite of what I had been experiencing. Thus, the creative flow of “New Moon” came through me that evening.
