Very beautiful and informative work about one place in a country, a huge country, that we still have so much to learn from and about. The fact that it is made more personal
by the relationship Alan has with it is important. And though
people may live in what we look at as poverty, these are
sometimes the people whose lives are the richest in culture…..not to gloss over poverty ever….it is not easy to
live with poverty….but how western eyes regard poverty
is usually about the accumulation of thing where the
real impoverishment comes from owning things but being without soul. Maggie Steber
I got a nice new piano. I am giving my old one away. The piano we used a few weeks ago at 2nd Story Recording Studio has the long lost old Sorcerer piano in it, the one I recorded Dead Boy and certain songs from the last album on a few years ago!!! I was so happy to see it again. It seemed different. I tried to pretend that I recognized it. But it reminded me of the cat that changed color when it got a new owner. Norah Jones recorded her first record on that piano too. Anyway it sounded great.
