"Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar." (Isaiah 33:17)

This song is a picture of being high in the clouds... "...sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth..." as John Gillespie writes in his famous poem "High Flight." Once again, the theme is running with joy... especially in the solo section where the synth harmonica solo begins. It's a bright happy tune. The eight note bell motif is also something that came from "somewhere else"... hard for me describe in any other way but remembrance.

Featuring:

Ray Lyon: keyboards, piano
Jeff Quay: drums
Robert Thomas, Jr.: hand drums
