"I'd always been a fan of those drawings. I realized you were also creating printable (DIY) artwork for the Compact Disc format. Then - one gloomy afternoon - I listened to your music. I looked at one of your sites .only to find one of my favorite quotes from the past 20 years regarding a new release you'd created >
"Only 1 physical release because it's useless to make music since 23 years " .
Not only had I been thinking about this same concept for quite some time.. I reached out - and, to my surprise, I found myself in a long discussion and now - what I like to call "Shird's Greatest Hits" /// But I also know from these encounters, "How To Retreat Forward" may, simply, be a brief collection of sounds and even songs from the - at times - quiet artist that does whatever they want while supplying an approach for anyone who cares to take the time to understand...and try"
