about

November 17, 2015 marks the one-year anniversary of the release of Correspondence (a fiction). I've always wanted to put out (a commentary) on the record. This is my [non]fiction.

I’d like to say that I think that art can stand on its own. I think that stories can just be stories. I don’t think that you need to know the why behind Correspondence in order to enjoy it, the same way that I don’t need to know the why behind Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings in order to enjoy it. That doesn’t mean the behind-the-scenes is unimportant, and of course the whys mean something (and Tolkien’s why happens to influence a lot of mine, in this case), but it is possible to simply enjoy something for what it is, or what you know it to be. It’s one of the reasons that I’ve always been drawn to artists whose lyricism forms any sort of depth enough to leave you sorting it out for yourself, or content to remain objective. When I was young, it was Andrew Schwab, Conor Oberst, Isaac Brock, Spencer Chamberlain, others. And even though my parents never stopped asking me why or what does it mean? so that they could understand or regulate, I never needed the lyricists’ reasons behind words that I simply thought were beautiful because they were. They existed. They were there and they were something that simply was and that was good in and of themselves.

That said, I’d like to tell you why.
