Music: “Clearer” (by Maria Skidmore)

“Even darkness must pass. A new day will come and when the sun shines it will shine out all the clearer.” (J.R.R. Tolkien)

If you are feeling low/discouraged, perhaps this song will be an encouragement to you–it is for me. Inspired by the words of Tolkien, my daughter Maria (a high school senior) wrote, composed, played and sang this song during the pandemic lockdown.
