I wrote this after a trip to Northern Sweden in the late 1990s...
I was sent to Gallivare, a copper mining town inside The Arctic Circle
to play a buncha gigs in an Irish Bar around a Paddy's Day weekend...
Everything is very still in the snow and the ice and sounds different...
I wrote it as a personal prayer, a meditation on life
swirling all around us... and within us...
Well known Irish record producer, guitarist and friend of mine
Declan Sinnott heard it, recorded me performing it with a band
we had for a while called "Small Town Talk".
The great song collector and performer, Christy Moore,
heard that version and liked it so much that he recorded it, too
and made it the title track of his 2009 No 1 album...
A very great honour, indeed...
This version here is the emotional center of this album...
