From the recording Layers of Identity
While on a flight over the Midwest, I was struck by the perfect squares on the ground beneath me, divided by black ice & flashes of green – geometric pieces, like a patchwork quilt. I started thinking about the pieces of our lives, the colors of emotions, and how we are defined by our relationships with both people and surroundings.
This song is a melding of those ideas. It is about finding hope within pain, of believing there can be love tomorrow even while in the darkest night.
