My Mistake (re-upload of “Where is Away?”)

Woman Sitting on a rock with a uke watching a mother whale and her calf.

Hi All,

I have been spending a lot of time involved in a project recently, where the issue of proper licensing has been a big topic – and I realized that I made a licensing mistake in the previous upload. So, I have taken the other video down and re-uploaded it in order to have the proper license attached to it.

Sorry about that!

Here goes again (and this time I have also attached the lyrics to this page – since I was asked about the lyrics – they are underneath the video link)

I have a new video up and a new category: Ukulele Songs about Real Things

This first song is a song called “Where is Away?” It is a love song to the Oceans and a sad song about plastic pollution in those oceans (I know plastic pollution isn’t the only issue – but I don’t know how to write a song that covers everything)…I’ve debated whether or not to publish this video because my goal is not to preach- but this chorus kind of wrote itself and the song came after and I decided, well, I just can’t hold onto it any longer. I hope you enjoy it…

  1. Thanks, Meggie. I love the song with the video. It reminds me of when you were the sea turtle in 8th grade in Ocean World. So sad.

    I sent your email on to Christoph, knowing he’d enjoy your work, too. I wish you lots of luck with your project.

    Hope to see you soon!

    1. Hi Emily – thank you very much! It actually makes me think of that as well (which also makes me sad).
      I appreciate you forwarding it to Christoph, and hope he likes it.
      All the best to you and hope to see you soon!
