The Field The Forest

by Joseph Parsons Band

Sometimes I need a path through a sun drenched field. One that feels good on my skin, my heart, my soul. A way that reflects hope or light, that gives me sense of peace in an unpredictable future. That shines.

And then there are times when I need adventure. That amplifies my senses, where I touch the edge, a pounding drum in the distance, anticipation of what lurks beyond tree or turn. A path rich with risk of discovery.
