This album of instrumentals spans a particularly dry period in my musical creation (from 2000 to 2010, but also includes a song from 2012 – Disforia, and 2015 – Extension). Part of the reason for this dry spell was that my partner and I were engaged in moving (fleeing) from the United States, to Indonesia and then to Canada.

My impression of this period is also that it was a fairly barren time for my “soul” (whatever that is). I did, however, write a good deal of poetry over this period, and am curious what might change about my perceptions of this period were I to spend the considerable time with these poems that setting them to music would require.

So that remains on my “to do” list. I’m tempted to use “The Lost Years” as a working title for this yet-to-be-made album. But I suspect, somehow, that I’ll have another title for it as it develops.

Just walked
On a long slab of concrete
Probably hundreds of metric tons
To the store
Thinking about the similarities
And differences
Between me and a squirrel
