Who Are We, America?

As I write this, I find myself feeling a mixture of familiarity and determination. Familiarity, because I felt this way about ten years ago, as I was preparing to release my first album, "Can't Go Back." It was 2010, and the album had taken a long time to make, for various reasons, ranging from trauma to financial restrictions. In a few short months, we would receive a letter from the Marin County DPW, announcing a meeting about a sidewalk planned for what used to be our street, a semi-rural road in Homestead Valley. It rocked me off my foundation for a bit, a foundation I had needed for a long time. Thankfully, I learned a lot from that experience, after all, that is what we are supposed to do, isn't it?

But I digress.
