So Ends This Day is the title of my new record.A collection of songs . Some hearken back to the days of Whaling in the 1800’s which I wrote based on reading letters , ship’s logs and personal journals from that time. The remainder are traditional old songs - each with a connection to a particular ship. A wife left behind , a wife on board, an adventurous young man , a brave and wise captain , an ill- fated voyage, a drowning , a rescue, an elegy , and a song of hope in times of despair.
Captain George Anthony would often sign off the daily entry to his ship’s log using the phrase “So Ends This Day” , in his strong cursive handwriting. I like the phrase and thought it befitted this collection .
