My mother gave me a lamp in 1998. Short on joy and hope at least I had light to read and write by. The winter gave way to a breezy springtime. An evening in late March I left my window open for the first time in months. Fresh air.
I wrote fourteen songs in the spring of ‘98. Quiet songs. Subtle songs. Introspection. Songs of severe depression and songs that bade farewell. I recorded in a “real” studio for the first time because these songs deserved something better.
I moved to Florida in October 1998 and began to rebuild.
