A double album, dancing between the material world and the inner experience.

The cassette is bookended by “invocation” and “conclusion,” and two “interludes” straddle the side flip. Also, instead of having a “side one” and “side two,” it has an “outside” and an “inside” (in that order).

Some highlights are “ miso ,” an a cappella song featuring heavy breathing, chest pounding, and lyrics from the back of a condiment package; " leaving home ," an extended instrumental meditation on growth and family; and the title track, a happy ode to sitting still.

Andrew Rappaport engineered nearly all these songs in June 1992, on my old Tascam four-track cassette recorder. We had a great time.
