Ata Ni

by Bow Thayer



Ata Ni is another song I wrote awhile back and features my departed friend Alex Abraham on bass. The song Is named after another friend, or as I call her, my medicine sistah! She has guided me into the plant realm many times and I must credit her for the phrase “feel it all the way.” Ultimately the song is about traveling fluidly through this earthly existence and realizing that our pain is really just self-inflicted/taught lessons in empathy. But try not to think about that too much...
