Part I – Black
Part II – Blue
This album is dedicated to anyone who has ever been in an abusive relationship. Whether it was with a person, a substance or a situation, and whether you were the victim, the abuser, or simply a bystander. Sometimes we hurt others, sometimes they hurt us. Sometimes we just hurt. For the addicts and lovers, the sisters and brothers, the mothers and fathers, the sons and the daughters: Keep your chin up.
Boudicca, for her wisdom.
Mom, Dad, Tim, and Carol, for life.
Friends, for reminding me that I’m not all bad.
Family, for loving me even when it looks like I am.
Heroes and fans, teachers and students, for giving me the strength to always try harder.
Lost loves and adversaries, for giving me a reason to have to.
God, the Creator, the Buddha Mind, the Universe, or whatever name it wants to be called, for all the beauty and the ability to share it.
Tonia. For being all these things. You are my very favourite family, my best friend, the reason I got sober, the only person I’ve ever been capable of truly loving, and the most supportive and fair human I’ve ever known. You saved my soul and I owe you mine.
