We wrote this song about 6 months into Julia Hill's famous two year "tree-sit". (1998-1999) We sent a cassette copy of the song up to her and were so happy to receive a phone call from her one evening, from "Luna"! (as the ancient redwood tree was named). We sent copies to local radio stations & it got a lot of airplay. It became a sort of "anthem" that radio hosts would play before interviews with Julia, up & down the west coast and in other various broadcasts.
This short slideshow documentary is comprised of our archived correspondence with Julia while she was still occupying Luna. Some of her artwork and poetry, which she has graciously given us her permission to use in this slideshow.
It is performed by Karrie (Jesse Manzanita) Wallace using over-dubbing of vocal and guitar tracks. Recorded in 1998.
This song was subsequently used as Theme & Background music in a full-length documentary entitled: "Butterfly" by San Francisco based filmmaker, Doug Wolens. Which has aired on POV and in many theaters worldwide.
