This song was originally written in 2000, with vocals as one of our "musical stories." Recently, we've decided to create instrumentals versions of some of our favorites. This is one of those.

For us, this music provokes memories and feelings of those years when we were feeling very much out of the mainstream—trying to find our collective way in this world for the second half of our lives together. We offer this instrumental, dedicated to anyone who is feeling centered and committed to following your own true path, even though that process can often set us apart from the popular culture. May we always search deep within, and persevere in finding our own unique path!

The original vocal version with accompanying story and lyrics, can be found on the "Uncommon Promise" site at the following address:
