We've got something big to share with you.
artwork credit: Kirk Teachout (and a friend of his whose name I don't know; sorry, friend!)
There was a coffee shop I used to frequent in Port Washington, WI called Java Dock. I worked there briefly as a junior/senior in high school (I think I was let go due to sleeping through my shift, kind of a big deal since only one person worked at a time and the guy whom I was to relieve had to be somewhere when I no-showed), but nevertheless it's all good memories. The all-unique mugs--the kind you're sure was owned by someone eclectic or famous--the local artwork hung all over the walls of happy dogs or nautical scenery or fruit that's the wrong color, and the little cactus plants potted all over the window sills. There was a second floor seating area right up the stairs from the kitchen, and it was here that I spent a lot of time engaging in conversation which would inevitably lead all over the landscape of our angsty (whatever angst one can muster in Scenic Port Washington), hormone-driven teen mind space, but not often landing on things of substance. Sometimes it's nice to talk about nothing; sometimes it's exhausting.
There are people with whom you've made a particularly gripping connection. You know, the kindred spirit, birds-of-a-feather sort of person, whose vibe, demeanor, and experience allows for that sort of talking which great friends can do even if they're only speaking for the first or second time.
But not all relationships are like that; this song is about the ones that feel like bringing a completely full latte up an equally full flight of stairs.
It aims to push its audience to ponder our patterns of speech and subject matter choice; maybe we need to open up, give a little, and love more freely.
I can't wait to share this song with you guys.
