Free of it All I wrote this in Guatemala while teaching English in the old-school town of Coban. Horse-drawn carts routinely meandered down the streets, vendors cooked on open fire grills, and rum was sold on every corner. I met a girl from South Africa, originally Dutch in her family line, and the accent or her personality or the step back in time of that place caused me to begin admiring her. We briefly dated, but her sister was getting married in Cape Town, so she left, and left behind a house where she had lived and lost a long-time lover. Having visited her there, and eventually taking over the rent, I could feel the fading anguish of her torment within those "pale cobalt walls." Knowing she was free of that pain inspired this song. (Photo: we hitched a ride in the back of a pickup truck on our way down from a mountain-top river where we spent the day swimming and jumping off cliffs into the cool blue water).
