Originally a marimba & vibraphone duet written as a wedding gift for Michael & Sara Wood, Edge of the World was inspired by the poem and beautiful watercolor print "True Things" by StoryPeople creator Brian Andreas. This poem poignantly captures the essence of two people starting their lives together and looking forward to what the future holds.
True Things - Brian Andreas
They came to sit and
dangle their feet off
the edge of the world
And after awhile they forgot everything
but the good and true things they would do someday.
