This album is dedicated to Larry Stanley. He enriched our lives, we laughed so hard, we played so fierce. The other travellers, Sam Walton, Tony Perkins and my Mother Marjorie, they're all up there with him, in the front row laughing, saving us a place.
Touring in the mountains has always
been a rite of passion for me.
As Bobby mixed this, we became so aware of the mountains speaking on the different instruments, the low rumbling ~ his feet in the earth, fireflies of light on the Skeena, arpeggios of moonrises and sunsets, playing the subplot, the notes between the thoughts.
Thank you to the musicians: Larry, Rod, George and Phil, and Bobby and John who helped me in my soul-reckenin' questo o'ramma.

This is how mountains make me
