“I think we need to be put back in touch with our childhood…
to be reminded of what’s important,
like memories about people we loved,
or things that happened to us that affected our lives,
things we can laugh about and shed a few tears about…
I think storytelling is a way of saying ‘I love you.
I love you enough to tell you something that means a great deal to me.'”

Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

The spirit turns away
Just laying off, for evidence,
An overcoat of clay
