"Plays out like a movie for me. Nice storytelling 👌" Vicki Me...Yes, but does the autism show? Vicki...Not necessarily. But the talent for music and creative expression coupled with the line voice of the narrator yearning to connect with others is pretty tell-tale imho It’s a recurrent theme. Even your social justice stance of anti-war. The outsider. The outlier. High intelligence and love of literature… Enter Vicki-Lee Peaceful nature Enter Vicki-Lee Vicki-Lee Cayrouse Not many other aspies have a handle on this too good. It would come down to sensory issues really. But if it’s not autism (Asperger’s syndrome) it’s probably something neurodivergent. And that could be ADHD (not always hyperactive presentation but more a neurology and the way you think) or bipolar (creatives) or something like sound synesthesia or dyslexia etc

If you don’t have Asperger’s syndrome or what is now known in the US as Autism Level 1 — I’ll eat my hat. It’s not to alarm or upset you, I just think we’re so like minded and you show so many traits. Your musical gift would then make you what’s called ‘twice exceptional.’ Look into it and see if it ‘vibes.’ Melbourne Vicki

Rafi Arkin said, "Great story and song. I didn’t listen to it all as I’m trying to get through more songs on the list, but what I did hear I liked and enjoyed reading the rest of the lyrics too. Thought some of the verse melody notes were a little obvious and I could see them being stretched slightly but that shows I was into it. Wish I could write song stories like that!"

I just listened to this again (good thing about home office: you can listen to music all day long, if you want). Definitely one of my favorites of yours.

All in all, a very good album. The melodies and harmonies blending together with the moody acoustic ad electric guitar. A very visual album. Nuno
