We kicked it around The Shed for a while, playing it this way and that, ironing it out, fine tuning etc.
A week ago we had a line up in The Shed that Kerry thought would do the song justice, and without much further ado we decided to give it a run.
So we ran through it a couple of times, then turned on the recorder.

" I love words and play. Song writing lets me do both. Rocking Pool came to me as a concept. I woke one morning with an image of a rock pool by the ocean, the feeling of peace we get in nature and the comfortable feeling of being held and rocked by a loved one. A tune and the words Rocking Pool were in my head. The comfort of feeling loved, the sensual pleasure water brings, the freedom and peace that letting go of concerns allow, are what I hope this song conveys........the love and peace that passes all understanding.......that only handing it all over to God enables. I hope you love the gorgeous instrumentation too! Thanks to the family in The Shed for making it all happen".
Well Kerry, it's our pleasure ma'am.
