After the typhoon had come and gone, it left behind a city with streets scattered with debris. Sunken roads and uprooted trees; powerlines dragged along the ground while roofs caved in along the beachfront.
Stepping out from barricaded doors expecting to find devastation, instead what I saw was resilience. Without hesitation, everybody went right to mending the wreckage.
Like sown torn seams we weave together as threads do; pulled together and made whole.
‘Threads’, inspired by this realization, was written and recorded in Vietnam, November 2020; and released on Monstercat Silk in August 2021.
