Lay back on the sweeping warmth, the rivers and sky visuals softly focus around the eyelids, under centered dial. Tiny territories, like miniature little creative-thought-and-sound-worlds we can inhabit, we can take up sleep under a shared star-shelter. We fill in blank space with our own personal histories and leave the remaining blankness open to interpretation and revelry. Borderless meaning is found and let go. A solitary rock in a fog of sea. The lion’s share of recording was done at Lake St. Peter, up at day’s first offering, hitting the record button, staring into the zone and out the window.
Then hiking. Then quiet nights. Two ghost selves, one outside in cold-weather covering, covered warm and exploratory. The second in still portrait realism, working, creating, finding expression.
