I went with producer, Gentry Stanley, to be filmed singing at the feet of the Giant Sequoia as the sun rose. This being had been given a militaristic name that didn’t ring true for me, so I asked it what it’s true name was. What I heard was ‘Adame’. When I went home I looked up the root of Adame, and found that it means ‘red earth’.  18 June, 2018
