In Their Words: “‘Have Your Adventure’ was a saying of my late Granny, Mariel Mae Summers Flory of Catlett, Virginia. It was a reminder to get out and see the world, make up my own mind about it, and also her way of saying I could always come home. It was the kind of knowledge gleaned from a life tethered to the seasons on our family farm for 91 years. I wrote this song as a mantra of sorts — we haven’t had a shortage of hardship in America lately, or opportunities for an adventure. My Granny would hope you’ve found your own.” — Simon Flory
