...she's in love with jack kerouac.


released May 11, 2017
hibriten mountain is a nice hike with a great view, an old hang-gliding ramp, communication towers, and a lighted big star and/or cross [depending on the religious season] that shows for miles. it's always been a refuge for people in western north carolina, although not that long ago it was a bit more of a secret. back then i used to walk alone with cassette tapes of riff ideas and a notebook in my backpack to a secluded spot i found on the back side of the mountain [see photo]. i wrote this song there. not that it matters, ephemera, etc...nice memory, though. thanks for listening. from "let the echo decide" cd.
