about

This album was recorded live at Yoga Bird yoga studio on September 23, 2016 during the regular Friday night Acoustic Flow 6 pm class. The recording device is a handheld TASCAM DR-07 two track recorder with stereo condenser microphones.
The recording started as part of a series of what-you-hear-is-what-you-get live acoustic recordings in various locations to assemble a compilation of the best recordings of original songs. On playback it became evident that with the concurrent yoga instruction, this recording should stand alone. Minor recording level modifications and effects were added to recapture the sound of the class.
Moments between songs were left intact since stillness is an important part of a yoga class. Background noises are as they were, such as shifting of yoga props, sneezing, coughing, and the sound of rain. Mistakes are left in as well, some more obvious than others since that is what the class heard.
Playing during a yoga class is different than a typical live performance. a flow yoga class begins in stillness with little or no movement, builds up to a peak energy level, and then comes back down to end in stillness. Nearly the opposite of the energy level during a live show or a performance as background music. The tempo of the playlist reflects that rise and fall in energy level.
Thanks to Yoga Bird studio and Chip Withrow for inviting me to play for the flow class and for encouraging this recording. Thanks to Lindsey Zimmerman for teaching a wonderful class where students can listen to music and pursue their yoga practice. Thanks to Cameron Betts, Michael Karns, Becky Warren and Jessica Szturmann for granting permission to include the songs we had co-written together. Thanks to Julie Patchouli & Bruce Hecksel, Becky Warren, Mare Wakefield & Kate Klim for granting permission to include their wonderful songs in this recording. I am proud to call them friends. If you enjoy the co-writes and songs please go to their music websites and buy their CD's.

Track Name: The Labyrinth
Take some time -- un-wind -- unravel your mind and walk the labyrinth through -- until it brings it back to you, take some time -- un-wind -- unravel your mind -- and walk the labyrinth through -- until it brings it back to you, ---- I know you're looking for some change -- but like the desert holds the rain -- for a dry spell or two -- let me hold it here for you -- and trace these lines through what happened, -- like a topo-graphical map then feeling everything you've known let it bring you right back home

Track Name: The Puzzle
The Puzzle
by Patchouli

The moon ---- rests ---- in a bowl of stars to-night and
I write into the wind -- and the words blow in letter by letter andYou, -- you are some-where that we used to share

Now we're looking at the same big moon
We're looking at the same bright stars
And we just see it different-ly, ------ like a puzzle fits to-gether
Staring at the same blue sky
We're sitting on the same big earth
And we just see it different-ly, different birds different feathers

He ---- left for overseas ---- and he took the family with him and
She sits and waits until the kids are a-sleep to wonder -- if
she stays up late, can she still paint her-self in the picture ---------

That they're looking at the same big moon
They're looking at the same bright stars
And they just see it different-ly, ------ like a puzzle fits to-gether
Staring at the same blue sky
They're sitting on the same big earth
And they just see it different-ly, different birds different feathers

A F#m D A
“I got customers,” she tells them, when they wanna buy her a drink
A B7 D A
With each glass they down they throw their money around and hit the tip jar with a wink
C#7
They got tan lines where their rings should be
F#m B7
Saccharine in their pleas
Bm F#m D A
The ropes and the rivets at the Spanish Main open their hearts like a master key

CHORUS:
E D A
The old men say, “Hey Betsy, lemme take you away”
E D A
“I got a hotel room with a beach side view and twenty dollar bills for days”

She just laughs when they start playin’

Actin’ like she’s the one who needs saving
E A G D
From double shifts at the Spanish Main
E A G D
Double shifts at the Spanish Main


She used to let em think she was thinking it over, now she don’t need tips that much
She’s got a man who works days near the Everglades and she and him do well enough
But the Cadillacs keep pulling up
Full of men who call her Buttercup
So she pours ‘em another and brings em their supper and keeps her own mouth shut

Track Name: The First Poet On The Moon
Mare Wakefield and Nomad - The First Poet On The Moon
Words and music by Mare Wakefield and Kate Klim

[C] The first poet on the [G] moon, Looked up and saw the [Fmaj7/C] earth rise [C]
Kinda like a [Fmaj7/C] sunrise [C] , In shades of green and [G] blue
Just like your eyes, and she didn’t have a [Fmaj7/C] speech planned [C]
She didn’t have a [Fmaj7/C] flag to plant [C], She came there for the [G] view

And she [C] knew, knew that words would never [G] do
Not when everything that’s [Am] true was a million miles a [Fmaj7/C] way
So she [C] learned, to see the world and watch it [G] turn
While we spin and while we [Am] burn from a million miles a [Fmaj7/C] way

[C] The first poet on the [G] moon, that’s what I felt like [Fmaj7/C] last night [C]
Gazing at the [Fmaj7/C] starlight [C], trying to talk to [G] you
I sent up, My satellites and [Fmaj7/C] rockets [C]
A compass in my [Fmaj7/C] pocket [C] , But am I getting [G] through

And I [C] know, part of life is letting [G] go
But it’s out of my con [Am] trol, when you’re a million miles a [Fmaj7/C] way
So I’ll [C] learn, to see the world and watch it [G] turn
While we spin and while we [Am] burn from a million miles a [Fmaj7/C] way

[C2] Astronauts and scientists, [Fmaj7/C] say we all are made of stardust
[C2] Galaxies inside of us just, [Fmaj7/C] longing for connection

Like we [C] knew, words would never [G] do
When everything that’s [Am] true is a million miles a [Fmaj7/C] way
So we [C] learn, to see the world and watch it [G] turn
While we spin and while we [Am] burn from a million miles a [Fmaj7/C] way
You’re a million miles away [Cadd9] , you’re a million miles away [G]
You’re a million miles away [Am]
[Fmaj7/C] And I’m a poet on the [C] moon

Verse 3:

When I close my eyes

My mind goes to the past

My mind goes to the past

When I wake up in the morning

I teach my mind not to worry


When I watch my breath

I bring peace into myself

I bring peace into myself

I calm down my thoughts

When I get stuck in the past
