Country, Living
Country, Living


As a perennial outsider, the speaker traverses through loneliness, consumerism, and silence, until he sees his personal history as communal. It's a quest to honor the complexity of the mind and heart over time--a quest for justice, love, and compassion. Cultural forces and conventions--repression, prejudice, power regimes-- frame feelings of powerlessness, and are explored deeply in this collection.
