In Their Words: “I wrote ‘Odysseus’ while I was stranded in Vermont, unable to get to my son’s birthday party. I used the story of Odysseus to parallel that sense of longing. When we made the video, things got a bit deeper for me personally. I’m depicted drinking in a bar while my son is fantasizing about me being there with him — I had lived that scenario out far too many times, I was completely helpless. I’ve been sober now from drugs and alcohol for four years. With the help of my higher power, my wife, and the 12 steps, I chose life with my family. Becoming a dad has been the most purposeful thing I’ve done or will do in my life. I don’t want to miss any more amazing moments. I’m so grateful to be here.” — Matthew Logan Vasquez
