Final Week in the USA

Right now it feels like a blur. Lots of ups and downs. Jury is still out on the music that I created. I’m wishing I had one more kind of ‘thing’ included in the compilation, but I’m not sure what that means. The tracks are all a little ‘nice’, even the ones intended to dance…
