Haunted Video

Watch this movie and read the lyrics to the song.  This film was done before the house fire.  I’m speechless.

“To Build A Home”

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home.

And I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust……..

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed its knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
Held on as tightly as you held onto me
Held on as tightly as you held onto me……

And I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust……..

I'm an author, photographer, entrepreneur, musician, husband and parent of twins. And most currently, screenwriter

    Haunting indeed. But also a beautifully poignant reminder that all is not permanent.

    Dear Gary; i didn’t hear about your house till i browsed through your site and found this video. With that tragic info in my head, i could not keep tears from my eyes. I am so glad nobody was hurt, ( I assume and hope). That movie was so touching, and done so well, the song so apropos. That was your dream house i can see, and tragic is the piano in burned state i cannot also bare to see. In fact nothing can be so sad of a sight as seeing your dream house in ruins. My sympathies to your family.

    Another subject, i really like your style of delivery in your lectures and tutorials.

    It seems you are also a realists concerning the State of United States, and i know it go’s far deeper and grander than just the Financial mismanagement. Friends also ridicule me for “waking up” and reporting what i see and learned. It is very easy remain in that sheeple dream state absorbing the BS pablum shoveled to us.
    I have chosen another path.
