I found a wagon wheel partially buried in the base of an oak tree near the Potomac river in the woods behind a obscure civil war battlefield or mustering area in Dickerson, MD... while imaging how it arrived at this resting place, stories began to unravel, some in the form of lyrics (I am a songwriter), and so I started to write a song about these historical stories. I wrote about this song to a man I'd learned about online named Frank Dominguez, who was collecting art and music for a peace project... I thought it would be a good song, for a world peace movement... at least potentially. Frank loved the lyrics I sent, so I began writing the music, and soon had a video team of incredible magnitude interested in the project (thanks to a friend and supporter of my band), and this video eventually became a featured part of the peace exhibition, which by this time had grown to include 150 countries! and I became an artist/ambassador, telling people in the music business all about this project, and what we hoped to accomplish.
Most of all, as the stories from the wheel took shape in my mind, I began to feel a new sense of peace and connectedness with the universe and with humanity. It made me happy. So the song accomplished one thing for sure!
