I have an obsession with old books. I love how they look, feel, and smell. On a bookshelf in my parent's farmhouse, I discovered a book called 'Bedford Village' by Hervey Allen. The closest town to our farm is Bedford, I had my doubts on the contents of this book I thought it would be a poorly written settlement story, but I was wrong. Within seconds I was pulled in by the writing. The first sentence happens to be the title of this album.
Here are a few lines from the beginning of the book:
Always, somewhere, it is morning. That bright streak of dawn extending from the arctic to the antarctic, the glittering boundary between day and night on this whirling sphere of ours, is always there. Dawn is not an isolated event renewed every day. It is a continuous astronomical performance.
...Wink at eternity, if you must, for winking is an involuntary human gesture - and you will not find the chance even in a lifetime to do much more than that about eternity - but whatever you do, keep both points of view firmly in mind; the eternal, and the timely one. They both exist, and they exist simultaneously. Combine them, or else you will understand very little of anything that is going on...
These songs were written between 2010 and 2013. They are about places and people and sights and feelings and how I see and live in this world.
