The Staying Place by kurtbestor

The song stars simply with the sound of "middle America" and a very measure "groove." Little by little the song grows in tempo and complexity mirroring my grandma's life and representing her progeny as they grew in number. Finally as the song comes to a close - the song has a poignant moment as all in her family gather around her bed as she passes on.

The song title comes from her room, where I used to like to go and visit her - the Staying Place. ~ Kurt
