I woke up Saturday morning to the this melody pushing me, urging me to get out of my bed, so I wrote, I recorded, barely ate then recorded some more. Come 6 o clock that night I realized I had done nothing but work on this track the entire day, I didn't catch even the slightest glimpse of sun. Sunday I decided to actually leave my place, get out and meet Kelly, my roommate, Stefen and Thomaslav, in a cafe and work on lyrics while they worked away on their perspective things. I brought my camera with me and just shot random things that filled my day. It's nice to come out into the world to work on lyrics, hear my song in headphones pretending I was someone else, working away, just listening with no intent. I asked some friends to listen to the song on my Ipod or via email and give me four words that come to mind. I got an email from a girl named Annalisa, she gave me three, but those three words hit me really hard. Flying, Falling and stillness. I fell in love with this idea, this contradiction in words, this beautiful place in the middle, a gorgeous almost lack of being - a gentle purgatory. She has mono right now and she is lying in bed. I thanked her for the inspiration and asked how she was doing, she told me that she was trying to be still, trying to communicate with every little part of her that she was present and then she said, "Thanks for asking, its nice to be witnessed even if it is in weakness". It is nice to be witnessed. I went home and in a fury of inspiration, took the clips that I had been shooting all day and put them to this song as is, before I really get to it. There is something that I wanted to share in this, maybe just how I live, maybe how I feel, or maybe, just to be witnessed.
