I’m so sorry to hear about your father. I know it’s a hard thing to deal with normally, but in these times, it can be especially difficult.

I think you captured your grief perfectly with this music.

Stay well, and keep making music and reaching out, we’re all of us on ccMixter here for you.

I am sorry for your loss.

This piece is a deeply moving listen, and is well-mixed. I like the crows—and the description of murders of crows. Years ago I remember walking in Whittier Narrows in southern California on a Winter day, where a nearby massive murder of crows occupied a huge willow tree, and made a chorus of caws as if in a dream.

Some days 2020 seems to me to require just such a vesper chorus.

Thank you, Gurdonark.

And thank you for sharing your story about crows… yes… so dreamlike. And hmmm… I love that… a vesper chorus.

Kara, the remix is great and picturesque. I am really sorry to hear about your loss. I worry about my dad since he has a heart condition and is high risk to not making it through Covid.

Kara, your vulnerability rips open my own heart and your grief envelops me. Your words are piercing with honesty. Your clarity speaking, though you’re “swirling in a morphine dream world”.

I’ve been thinking about you, during this season that had already been so horribly unkind to you with your mother’s passing years ago. The cruelty of now losing your father is nearly too much to bear.

I’m so very sorry for this horrible and irreparable loss. Your musical artistry is a gift for us all. We cannot thank you enough for all you do for our community.

We are here for you, holding you in the music that connects us around the world.

You are an amazing human. I am so thankful for this incredible community. Creating music with everyone here has directly helped me process and rejuvenate. Thank you with all of my heart.

Powerfully raw and personal Kara, it takes courage to express such intensity. That’s why we love artists like you, ones that are brave enough to not hold back. Thank you for sharing.

Hey Spin, thank you. I must admit that I considered not sharing this one… but you know, sometimes these things make it to the right ears. Thank you for all of your love and support, dear friend.

I watched a interview/conversation between Elvis Costello and Iggy Pop yesterday, and they touched on art and vulnerability and courage, exactly what you embody. Thank you for sharing your truth.

Oh my! First of all, our best wishes and condolences are with you. We’re sorry to hear this - but it seems that music often acts as a pain relief or at least a distraction.
A very deep and emotional track. Chapeau!

Dearest Kara, much love to you and your family during this incredibly hard time. That you can find the strength to share your voice during such a time is inspiring particularly as this sorrowful painful experience you write about is unfortunately shared by so many during the pandemic. I hope you and your family find comfort.
