The glee of being on the road again, the thrum of technological addiction, the joy of rain, the pain of watching the suffering of others – worthy of so much more. The true understanding of belonging, home and friendship.
Born of 2020 dreams, stoked by the gilded hopes of creation above all through 2021 and released with the heaviness of the last 2 long years of the Covid pandemic in 2022.
I think ‘Upon These Open Skins’, despite all the above, may still be somehow relevant. May it strike something deep inside you.
