Dark Winter: Reprise

A couple of years ago, I posted this little notice about my daughter Ellie Avishai's song, "Dark Winter," which she wrote during the week immediately after 9/11. Nothing evokes the morning of the attack for me like this gentle song, and I thought I might share it again, especially for the hundreds of readers who were not following this blog in 2008. The song has continued its career, while the songwriter has focused on building an educational consultancy with the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Business. And Ellie got married this past Sunday, to her partner of many years, Brian Studniberg. For that day, at least, it was hard to imagine any winter not being brightened considerably by a daughter's eyes.
