ODE TO MARY'S STATUE IN THE GARDEN
How many statues of “Mary” are out there
in so many different gardens for so many years
affecting so many different people praying so many different words
in so many different languages, having so many different emotions
for so many different needs, seeking answers to so many different problems
affecting so many different families in so many different ways?
That is the question!
Statues of The Blessed Virgin Mary
kept in so many gardens or homes
have provided a continuing level of
peace, comfort and inspiration.
Many who have statues of Mary
find themselves silently communicating
with Mary out of habit, out of prayer or out of answers.
How do you capture the essence of it all?
That is the challenge!
It's a challenge that never changes!
How do you reflect what is thought,
what is spoken, what is desired, what is inspired
and most importantly, what has been left unspoken?
Hopefully, you will do it with clarity, with simplicity,
with an unforgettable melody, an uplifting message,
a motivating beat and sometimes, with a silent moment
that magically releases hidden emotions from deep inside.
This is the result!
Those special conversations with Mary have now become
the basis for the lyrics and music to our new song,
“Ode to Mary’s Statue in The Garden”.
Delivering the essence of feelings from
intimate conversations with “Mary”
was always our primary goal.
Even directions given to the vocalist
were to imagine only two people being
present in the room, the vocalist and “Mary”.
It's no wonder, beautiful, simple lyrics were born
from those special conversations people have had
with their very own statue of “Mary” in their garden or home.
Hopefully, they will now be able to say them or even sing them,
to an unforgettable melody.
Hear it every tomorrow
