“When you speak of Roses and Thorns, the paradox within one beautiful flower. The marriage of a male and female the crown of thorns with Jesus and Mary Magdalene being known as the rose I thought that all of us at some time in our live experience a sacred marriage of sorts. I truly wanted there to be, in the garden, a place for union.
In all of us there is a love. In all of us there is another piece, a mirror piece. Yes within, of course you have to fine your own twin flame within your being, but there is someone, and someone it is more than one person that you go into sacred marriage with and I explore it in different songs on this record especially Marys of the Sea. Which is about her journey out of Jerusalem and fleeing and once she gets to the south of France she takes on a ministry herself. The Gospel of Mary Magdalene is something that I had herd about but hadn’t read until I was much older. My mother, a minister’s wife read it for the first time very recently and she looked up with tears streaming down her face and she took my hands in hers, and her name is Mary, and she said “Darling. Why? Oh Why? Has this been kept from me my whole life I’m not someone who isn’t exposed to literature particularly Christian literature, my mother was a literature major and she said yet this is something that has not been available” then I said “Well I think that is the key question. Why two thousand years later would the Gospel of Mary Magdalene be hidden from the masses. Now to me that is the greatest story never told and I explore this greatest story never told in Marys of the Sea.”
