I wrote much of this in the early half of 1997. At that time, I was experiencing some upheaval, and documented almost everything in audio journals, and in the form of my guitar playing, which became very diligent, and very structured all of a sudden.
Then, the project went on hold, as I began to deal with much of what was coming up during the writing process. Vague enough? …Those feelings were so intense that I never revisited the songs for almost ten years. It was like a magnet, finding so much power within this creative block, and so I considered it a great honor to finish and record all eleven tracks.
