When I learned of the passing of my cousin this week, this song became a prayer and requiem. I had already thought of the title, “A Man Walks Into a Clearing” and it seemed right for one who had lived such a life as my cousin, Clayton. I recorded an iPhone video of myself playing it for my Aunt.

Isaiah Eldridge, a local film-maker and journalist, spent some time with me last week as I we both plied our trades.
I am not a video-maker, but I had to try when I saw this flax fluttering about in the wind last week.
