...to my online home.

For me, Home is a place, and also a feeling - a deep and rich one which I've sought time and again in my music and lyrics.

So, please come on in and make yourself at home. I'm so glad you are here. I'll do my best to keep you up-to-date with the happenings in my life and share with you those things that continue to interest me.

Maybe I'll see you here, or out there on the road, but I do hope I see you. And do stay in touch, if you're so inclined. We are, after all, in this together.

From Cris --- Harvest --- My friends planted a small and sturdy apple tree many years ago.  I would see it and walk by it whenever I visited them.  Just this year, it has born fruit…beautiful red apples, small and well-nigh perfect, are now upon the bough, the small tree so heavy with these crimson jewels that it must be propped up so that it does not break.  One taste of these apples and you know it has been well worth the wait.  Well worth the wait…and so it is with most things in life.  If you are anxious for the harvest, so anxious that you go out at night and tug on the young growth, it still will take its time, and will reveal itself when it is ready.  One must learn patience in this world.

Like this tree, small and sturdy, and always about its work, we, too, must grow patiently and constantly, in all weathers, no matter what.  It’s not about the fruit of our labors.  It’s about the constancy, the faith, the Promise of Apples.  And when the harvest time comes round, the fruits of our labor may be so productive that we may need support around us so that we do not break. We are the harvest, we are the fruit, we are the bounty of our lives, grown in soil that’s been watered by tears, warmed by sunny dispositions, encouraged by our very natures to reach upward towards the Light, driven by the seed within toward the Harvest of our selves.

Independence outside of corporate control and money when it comes to a life in music is always a challenge to maintain for one song or an album, never mind a career. More...
