  • I want to be part of a community of people whose first allegiance is to empathy and mutual understanding. This book is the result of an exercise meant to help actualize that aspiration. Over the course of two months of touring in support of my album, "Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow", I took time to imagine my own reasons for many strangers’ most basic decision. The result is three reasons to live in thirty four cities in the United States and Canada. Empathy and mutual understanding can start with a small affirmation:

    I could live where you live.

about

Nostalgia can seem comforting, but I think it should be incredibly unsettling. I wrote the songs on "I Remember When Things Were Better Tomorrow" around the idea that the best period in my generation’s lifespan was gone, but after a few nights on the road, looking people in the eye with that idea in mind, I saw how lazy I was being. It doesn’t feel good to be devoting so much time to counting the ways we’ve failed, and ignoring the hundreds of little ways I could be fixing this mess. Its time to stop drowning in nostalgia, and start finding ways to make our lives about repairing our broken systems. I think the first step is admitting that anyone's problem is all of our problem.
- Jonah
