Always for me the question of place is central. I still am trying to figure out how geography and all that goes along with it informs our language and music. Maybe this comes out of feeling like an “outsider” because of where I grew up—if that even exists anymore. I’m not sure. But even that I find so curious. How was it that my early associations of culture, art, and being a writer, in particular, were not with the place I was from? Place is so important, even if our notions of it are based out of misinformation or stereotypes. But besides all of that, as I travel around I still believe to a certain extent “change your geography, change your mind.
