Music (and books!) to push the tides of your heart

As you may have noticed, in addition to sharing great indie books, we also like to share links to virtual literary, cultural and just-plain-fun events. We've also shared links to great music on occasion, and that's what we have for you today.

Here's a beautiful cover of Bron-Yr-Aur by guitarist Gretchen Menn. The song was originally written and performed my Jimmy Page. Yes, Page and Led Zeppelin are mainly known as rockers, but Bron-Yr-Aur is a contemplative acoustic instrumental piece, inspired by Page's time at a rustic 18th Century stone cottage in Wales owned by Robert Plant's family. Bron-Yr-Aur is Welsh for "Hills of Gold." Take a listen and transport yourself to the rolling hills of Wales for a few minutes.

”Light breaks where no sun shines; Where no sea runs, the waters of the heart push their tides.” ~Dylan Thomas
