I could not wait until February 13th’s “New To You Sunday’s” post for this song I’ve been playing the last few days. I’m surprised that I slept on this gem from Joi’s 1996 Amoeba Cleansing Syndrome and call myself a fan. But in my defense, “Dandelion Dust,” “E’en So Lord Jesus,” “If I Could Fly,” & “Dirty Mind,” are amazing songs in their own right.

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
