Lieder von einer Lange Reise
(Songs from a Long Journey)
Available in Tape and in CD

One Sunday Anja asked me to help her record two or three songs to send to a friend, 
 a young girl in Germany .  By nightfall this full collection of ballads was complete. 
You will sometimes hear the crickets and the songbirds in the background. 
This is because Anja sat  with her guitar in an open sunny  sliding glass door on the 
southern side of the Touchstone Farm Dancing room as she sang and played. 
Though the songs are in German, your heart is sure to leap and to weep 
as you listen to these simple and exquisite ballads.  Once you have read the translations, 
you will be captured within the stories and the meanings behind these ballads forever.
Like the poets words an elder woman neighbor placed on her on a garden gate,
ìBeware ye who enter into here,
For ye shall nevermore escape nor be free of my spell.î
