Nadie es profeta en su tierra - no one is a prophet in their own land.  We dedicate this album to the pioneer side of each person, that drives him or her to explore foreign lands, whether traveling, getting up and setting foot outside the house, or traversing emotional terrain within.  And to the tiny artist inside each of us, who closely observes our heaviest dreams, who, rather than ignoring our deepest struggles, acknowledges, accepts and celebrates them, who appreciates solitude, who sees beauty and finds inspiration amidst loss and sadness, and who champions our childlike fantasies, aspirations and dreams.

 

Dedicamos este álbum al lado pionero de cada persona, ese que motiva a explorar tierras extranjeras, ya sea viajando, levantándose y pisando fuera de casa o recorriendo terrenos emocionales. Al pequeño artista que todos llevamos dentro que observa atentamente nuestros sueños más pesados, él que no los ignora sino que los reconoce y acepta, honrando las luchas internas, él que se hace amigo de la soledad, que encuentra belleza e inspiración en la tristeza defendiendo las fantasías, las aspiraciones y hace realidad los sueños que se tenían de niño.
