Usually, I sort of just wing it and see if it works. This was the third tree that got made to go with the roots. I am glad I was persistent and stuck with the idea I had in my head.
The title comes from a line in a Dylan song — You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere. I’ve been thinking a lot about the music I grew up listening to. In this case it was the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band cover version of the song.
