On the Verge

It's full-on.

That feeling of dread when I am on the verge of releasing a new record. Proud of every moment on it, and it has to come out like a child, even though there are millions of children in the world already.

I know full well perhaps no one will care that there is this one more child in the world, nor about her delicate uniqueness, nor her combination of characteristics that make up her vivacity and strength.

And yet...

This is MY child, conceived within a family of exquisite artists, soul-doctors and music-midwives. Even if no one is looking or listening, she will be born, she will wail loudly from toes to heaven, and she will beautiful.
