I didn’t know the uke could do sad. (But I guess I knew you could do sad.) Anyway - it’s perfect song crafting. Nice vocal harmonies too. Real nice.

I actually look forward to the shorter days, better suits my default mood, which is not dark but rather quiet/contemplative. (Well, alright, it’s a little dark.)

Hey Speck- thank you. Very Much.

I hear ya’. I’m glad you look forward to the shorter days. (Really.)

There it is again - that gift for wry, cutting lyrics but with that twist of humour which gets everyone on your side. Well, me anyway. Perfectly sung, interpreted and recorded. Who’d want to spend the holidays with us!! Let’s hibernate (after we’ve eaten all the chocolates). This is such a great song.

Thank you so much, Moira. You are too kind, my dear friend. I would LOVE to hang with you on the holidays… we could make one heck of a Grinch-fest (and then hibernate, indeed).

thanks for so beautifully sharing your honest feelings during this dark time of year. your vocal performance is so solid, so clear. great harmonies in the chorus. and of course, your uke rocks! the ending is inspiring indeed (and I love the up up up call and answer). may that light of spring come soon for us all!

Thanks so much for listening and for your thoughtful review. I’m very touched by your vocal compliments. The hopeful ending wasn’t planned… happened while recording… funny how the hope makes its way through…

Still wonder how you can create so much lovely songs. It’s like a rain of beautiful tunes! :D

It’s a long time I didnt say that, so lets say it: your singing is wonderful!

Since I loved it, I tried to change it in my way. Thanks for sharing the vocals!
