I recorded this in 2010 at the Starr's Guitars Studio in Cedaredge, Colorado.  It was mainly a live and solo recording--just me and my guitar.  Well, actually there are cameo appearances by David Starr and Steve Stapenhorst, and I added violin to a couple songs and a few harmony vocals.  It has three new versions of older songs of mine, and eight new songs:
Taking Our Lives
Cabin in the Meadow
Every Reason
I Am Waiting
If Not You
Fundamental Problem 
Grand Junction
Don't You Listen
Meet Me by the River
Missing You
Prayer

Lyrics

I am a pilgrim and a traveler
And I love the journey like I love my home
On the open highway, in the wild high desert
In the cool green mountains, I never feel alone
 
Sometimes I travel a long time alone
The wild my only companion
Night after night in the pale starlight
I see that the road carries on

I am a pilgrim and a traveler
And I love the journey like I love my home
On the open highway, in the wild high desert
In the cool green mountains, I never feel alone
 
Sometimes I walk at the side of a friend
Together we find our way
Down roads unused for many long years
Or roads traveled yesterday
 
There’s beauty in all things around me
Life that I don’t always see
I walk in darkness till a sudden summer rain
Washes the blindness from me
 
I carry inside me the seeds of my home
Plant them wherever I can
In wide open spaces and wild open hearts
In the touch of a loving hand
 
I am a pilgrim and a traveler
And I love the journey like I love my home
On the open highway, in the wild high desert
In the cool green mountains, I never feel alone
Ah, the journey is my home
