MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE:  Nirvana opening for Dinosaur Jr. at the Paladium in 1991

I WROTE THIS SONG: I wrote this song during a year I was living in a small community above Santa Barbara called Painted Cave.  I had previously been renting a room in a house with 7 other dudes (The Mothership)  and intentionally left to go hole up by myself and spend more time writing.  This was one of only a couple songs that came out of this period and lyrically encapsulates what I came to during that time.  Shared hopes and dreams are typically greater than individual ones.
