Nothing Can Prepare

Recorded in the same session at Travelling North, in Catford. When you become a parent, everyone you meet has advice, has tips, has things you should and shouldn’t do, has experiences to share, old wives tales to recount, doctors’ advice to pass on... What became apparent pretty quick was that nothing can prepare you for the encounter with that other human being. Like advice on any relationship, much of it goes out the window in the negotiations that happen between the two - or in this case, three - people. It’s a mad adventure, one I came to with pretty much no expectations, and certainly no sense of desire or need to pass on my DNA. Flapjack doesn’t feel like part of me, any more than the music does once it’s out there being experienced by other people. But my sense of responsibility and love towards him and the music is in no way diminished by seeing them as distinct entities apart from my role in helping them come into existence. I do what I can to guide them, and help them meet the people who will give them wings to fly. Beyond that, I just enjoy the ride.
