Welcome to Sunday Morning Lyricality, featuring a weekly song or poem by a Minnesota writer. Our current guest editor is TJ Larum, a musician & songwriter.

 Music often exists in the sonic realm, much the same as the spoken word. What is spoken word, but simply vibrations cultivated by our vocal musculature? Listen as Simon’s lyrical guitar “speaks,” as it contacts his inspirations, such as nature and spirituality. Be mindful of where your mind wanders when listening to a “song without words.”
