This all started with a song I wrote in April 2021, based on prior work from November 2004. I missed the process of making sound and words out of nothing and shaping them into something that spoke to me. Or for me.
The album track order was similar to the writing order, then when there were a half-dozen or so I switched two near the beginning. Then I moved a couple more around, I think. But more importantly, I laid our what I had with gaps where songs not yet written needed to go.
Then I wrote them.
As far as a concept, there isn't one, although there are some themes, both intentional and otherwise.
