From the recording Beach Down in the Islands

During a few days of downtime from a bad cold, I occupied myself by reading “The Pelican Brief” by John Grisham. The image of an escape plan to the Islands for the good guys in case their complicated intrigued failed, stuck in my mind all night, and images of living on a remote island turned around in my head. The next morning, I walked straight to the piano and wrote the whole song in one sitting.
