For Dara. Thank you for being patient and letting me know when I'm out of tune.
The first time I thought about the words "edges of light" I was in a car at night looking at blurry circles of light through a rain-spattered window. I thought about the fuzzy edges of light and how what I labelled an edge was really a continuum, stretching down into the imperceptible.
Where is the edge that separates light and darkness? Green and blue? Good and bad? Sometimes we look too closely and get lost in the blurriness, unable to make a judgment. Sometimes we don't look closely enough at our hard lines and judge too quickly.
I recorded most of this album in the fall and early winter of 2014, but half of the songs were started over the last 5 years (2009, 2011, 2012, and 2013) and revisited in 2014.
I'm incredibly proud to put this out there as a musical representation of myself. This music is me.
Thank you for listening. I really appreciate it. I hope you enjoy it.
