This instrumental body of work is about finding peace in the storm and watching the sun rise on a new day. It also addresses the timeless truth of our need for constant creation (art, music, gardening, children), filtered through the prism of life's events. Some fun experimenting and downright silliness took place during these sessions, while a constant longing for level water saturates the album as a whole. We are all editors of our own lives. Gregg Kendall and Chad Wells helped me out on a couple of tracks. Special thanks to Abby for the inspiration behind "Charlie Chickmunk".
