The city I was born in, I grew up in. Like
a spouse to whom I had been promised
before I was born and ended up being
married to for over twenty years. My love
to her has never been questioned. And
only lately I begin to realize it had never
been my choice.

This is my home. I couldn`t be more tired
of it. Couldn`t be more tired of sounding
calm and sweet. A roughness needs to
be released. And chewed and put into
perspectives. Construction sites cover
the city`s face like open wounds, and it`s
time to rub salt in them.

Yet home is not just the place, it is also
the people, my friends that I found in
recent years and began to love dearly....
Now these songs attempt to unite both,
merge recordings of my actual, physical
surroundings, my city, my house, my
heartbeat, with the subtle presence of
my friends whose instruments I borrow
and play, one for each track.

Home`s impossibe to deal with. You`re
wrapped tightly in its embrace, can`t
shrug it off easily. And yet at times there`s
nothing more desirable than to cut loose
from it for good.

You can`t, you won`t. You`ll always bear a
trace of your connection like a scar, like
a second belly button. Deal with it. And
disassemble, deconstruct and analyze
your paths and where they`ll lead you,
remember where you are.
