NOTES ABOUT THE ALBUM
Here are songs for dancing and daydreaming, relaxing and renewing. Songs about limits and limitlessness, songs of joy and of the journey. They’re definitely songs to sing along with—mostly written by me, but also some that I love by others. You may see a lot of me in this album—and you may find a good deal of yourself as well. Mostly, I’m hoping you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it. Peace and blessings. Bhavani
...uplifting and soul-searching songs in which [Bhavani's] rich voice glows against a tapestry of musical accompaniment by Linda Worster, David Grover, Mark Kelso and others.

Bhavani’s clear, warm voice touches your soul, the lyrics fill your heart with joy and hope, and the combination transports you to places of inexplicable beauty.
