THE STORY:
Following the summer of ‘97 I planned to move to San Francisco with a friend. I awaited her letter giving me the green light. The leaves changed color. Temperatures dropped below zero. A brutal chill crept in. The letter never came. Three years of geographical hop-scotch were over and I was left to face stillness.

More than ever the cold felt unbearable. Whimsical summer bade farewell and the claustrophobia of winter approached. I regulated myself to the floor of my friend’s spare bedroom. In the course of travel I’d parted with most my possessions. I didn’t own a lamp. I lived in darkness until a friend bought me a candle.

And so marched the procession from depressed September to unstable October to suicidal November. I documented my harrowing journey into previously unexplored darkness. These songs became my AUTUMN.
