A lock down, trans-continental collaborative piece. Jonathan Taylor, old friend and guitarist, wrote the basic song and sent the guitar track to us from Johannesburg. With the help of too much wine I wrote the melody and lyrics and John recorded my vocals and played bass and piano. The video consists of some choice travel photos, from the various places we have called home. I like the way it turned out.
