From the recording That Stone
I was in the audience one night when Bay Area folk singer/songwriter, Steve Kritzer, sang his song about Irish stones. That started me thinking, “what if a stone could sing?” In my mind’s eye, I saw an image of an old gypsy woman and a young boy on a beach and the magic of a stone that sings. I had met Steve Meckfessel recently at a songwriter’s circle and I thought this was an idea right down his alley. Bingo! We sat down outdoors in Santa Cruz one morning, a block from the beach, and cranked this touching song out.
