The text and prose contained in this collection dates back as far as the early 1980s. Some are coolly-distant observations which could form the lyrical basis for a song while others stand alone, radiating individuality and a deeply personal character. In sum, they paint a picture in which the intensity and the gravity forming the nucleus of the early first-person narrations is deconstructed, like pinpoints of light within the constellation of a much larger scheme of things. While the first-person significance seems to diminish with this perspective, the order inherent within this bigger picture benefits directly from the structure provided by each individual observation.
