First and foremost, this is NOT an "official" CatchingYourClouds lyric video. This is just something I did because it holds personal value to me. (SEE STORY BELOW)
When I was about 13 I found this wonderful place in the woods with my friends. It was somewhere to relax and be in peace away from the troubles of the world, and it holds an incredible importance in my life. Without this place there probably wouldn't have even been a CatchingYourClouds, as it is where I finally and officially decided that I wanted to start releasing music under that alias, or at all, rather than keeping everything I wrote within the confines of my own room.
Over time my friends stopped coming here, but I never did. I carved my initials in the tree stump when I first came here over 7 years ago, and after not being here for almost 3 years, it was such a relieving and calming feeling to see it still there.
It took a lot for me to come back here, this is a very emotional place to me, and after I stopped rolling the camera, I probably sat here for hours just pondering and listening to the many sounds of the water hitting the stepping stones in the creek to the trains that still pass by here every once and a while.
Disregarding the lack of "professionalism" in filming this, I wanted to bring you all on this first trip back with me, because of how much it means to me, just like all of you, and CatchingYourClouds in general. I'm so wonderfully grateful to share this entire adventure I've had with you all, and I hope we can continue to Traverse it together.
