ABOUT THIS SONG
When I was a facilitator in Support Group Network in the early to mid 80's, I was in a beautiful flow. I was a teacher of 4th grade, a regularly performing musician, a big mucky muck in SGN, and even had a really cool perm...honestly, I thought I was the hot s**t. This was the pendulum swing from the phase when I thought I was a piece of s**t. Funny about life.

As you can imagine, SGN was predominantly made of women who were opening up and creating support for themselves in powerful ways. There was vulnerability, the good kind, everywhere. And because I was the champion of doing my personal inner work, I was very in touch with my emotions...sensitive, a great listener, and knew how to honestly support the movement of emotion in anyone. In other words I was safe. Of course we had well defined rules about facilitator student relationships...and I honored those despite temptation. But that did not stop me from Jimmy Cartering now and then...lusting in my heart.

There was one such woman, a doctor's wife, who was in a particular challenging point in her life. I was clear, supportive, helpful, and safe with her. We talked a lot about the situation she was in. And yes, I became smitten with her...so much so that when I had set up a concert of my original material for SGN members only, I slyly slipped in this song for her...as a coded invitation for her to do something for her...you get the picture. Boy when the human mind and heart get dancin' there is no telling what might blossom...well, nothing did...and rightly so. But the song did inspire her to work on her marriage...and, in a big way, that was what it was for...I just used myself for inspiration. 

It's a moody piano piece...and rightly so. In the middle of these kinds of reflections, and wonderings, and projections, it gets foggy and mysterious.  The minor key feel drops us in the middle of solving a deeply personal dilemma...hopefully...oh, where will you go, what will you do...oh, will you survive these changes in you...
 
SONG LYRICS:  ONE BURNING QUESTION
 
One burning question Steals your time tonight
Do you follow your heart Or set it aside
For routine has kept you So safe so secure
The spark has long faded You’re not really sure
If the road you’re on Will lead you back home
 
Years of protecting that lost little girl
Have whitewashed your vision
Pulled Light from your world
Now the voices are calling To tear down those walls
Your mind it is racing Your heart wants it all
And the road you’re on
Looks lonely and long
 
    Oh where will you go what will you do
    Oh will you survive These changes in you?
    For the love you want
    Requires your letting go
    Nourishing self and soul
    No resisting at all
 
You long for the fire that once Filled your soul
Where is the dream That you lost long ago
Can you risk the destruction of All that you’ve known
Cast your fate to the wind Walk your pathway alone
And the road you’re on Whispers won’t you come home
 
Oh where will you go What will you do
Oh will you survive These changes in you?
For the love you want
Requires your letting go
Nourishing self and soul
No resisting at all
