Healing is about finding happiness; about the transition from a negative state to equilibrium. Happiness can seem mythical. Like a place of which we speak, but have never been. How do we know it exists? We remember. If your memory fails, try to find it again. The light is just beyond the trees. See for yourself. -Paul Skomsvold, Former Selves
"Healing" comes from Telos, Paul Skomsvold's latest release as Former Selves; issued by Bridgetwon Records in a CDR edition with the rest of their 2012 "Summer Batch". The blurb Paul sent along with the track's homemade video accompaniment, an abstract slice of colorful hypnagogia, actually suggests a more realistic comparison with that quality's flipside: the hypnopompic. The slow morning reorgnization of memory, appropriate enough as I write during this overcast morning in West Virginia.
