One thing I’ll always appreciate is the devotion I have committed to my ancestors. Paying homage to my roots with every note I play and every stride I make – ultimately, in the evolution of my being. I may not have a sound identity, in fact rather, I am a convoluted imbalance. A walking paradox. I may not the faintest idea of who I am but I believe I may have an idea of who I must be though. That is my saving grace. Alas, Identity is a matter of principle, of value, and of self awareness. Am I right?

To be continued.
