Politics, Love And Other Small Miracles
BY JOHN MCCUTCHEON
"... When we gather 'round that fire there's no telling what stories might be told. Songs of love and politics, courage and forgiveness, parody and pathos, somehow they are not unrelated. When I gathered the songs for this collection they captured a small piece of time in a long life of trying hard to pay attention. They seemed to remind me of some small truths I've learned. If hard times can't have humor we won't survive them. If old love doesn't have some memory of youthful passion it, too, will fade. And the many stories of ordinary people responding to ugliness with beauty continue to fascinate and thrill me. Politics, love and other small miracles...all fueled by this same fire."
