I went through about 5 dozen names for my record and after all my searching, I came back to where I started. Poetic, isn't it? These latest songs are born out of a rumbling in my soul that has moved me in more ways than I can mention, and I am humbled that I get to put them out there in the universe for you all to hear. I feel open and excited to keep moving, and even though I can't see the turns in the road, I trust I will know what to do when I get there. This motion, this unsettled feeling that keeps me racing forward is a gift that I am grateful for every day. Martha Graham said it better than I, and so I am naming my album after some of her beautiful words:
There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
