(i swear i was a mess)
In 2002, on Dr. King's birthday weekend, i was inspired by the dreams which we were taking time off to reflect upon. That weekend i began writing this song.
The next year, on the same weekend, i completed it. Then i made this studio-recording, starting at about 11 am, on election day, November 2008, when (as it turned out) Barack Obama was being voted into office.
