Harper by Moonlight

Harper Maiscott, November 2007.

 

My nephew Sean's daughter, Harper, was born on Sept. 11, 2007, giving that date a new meaning for me, a New Yorker who lives about a mile from the World Trade Center. (I've previously posted about my experiences around the time of 9/11.) One night when Harper was a baby, her mom, Jenny, and I were out on their porch with her, looking at the moon. That inspired a song that I have just put up on soundcloud. I hope you can listen, and if this day is a hard one for you, I hope it brings a moment of glistening moonlight.
