“Austin Friars” was a bear to work on. It took more than two weeks to finish putting it together. This song, “Sisters (Other Days)” came about a lot faster — two days. The essential chord progression is kind of a mirror of a song I wrote more than 20 years ago called “The Light of Other Days,” hence the parentheses.

It’s dedicated to my sister, Gina, who loved and watched out for me no matter what was going on her life, and to my wife and her sister, Ronnie and Jackie.
