I wrote "A Quiet House" in the late winter of 2021. At the time, I was deep in grief over the death of my mother in 2020 and the more recent death of my beloved dog Bella (black dog laying on my feet). I was suffering with a major bout of depression and this song is kind of a snap shot of this particular moment in time. One morning, I hadn't slept much and I decided to finally give up and just go downstairs to watch the sunrise (Morning in a quiet house). I watched the snow gently falling outside my window as the sun came up and I could feel the house breathe around me. In my heart, I felt this tremendous sense of peace - a deep knowing that, although I couldn't see my way right now, at some point in the future, I would be okay again. The grief wouldn't be so heavy and the pandemic would end and I would be ok. "A Quiet House" reminds me of this moment and I still sing it to myself almost every week. It feels like a hug from my mom. I hope the song brings you comfort and peace. Consider it a hug from me (and my mom) to you.
