And it’s hard to say you don’t :: Two tune Saturday

Driving With the Brakes On (live) :: Del Amitri I might drive away (by me) I stumble halfheartedly through the day-to-day, picking up strays, thoughts, grey hair, ex-lovers, memories. Sometimes it all appears to me like a snapshot, of someone else’s place to be, and, I am just a shadow reflected on the wall, starstruck stuck, in the flickering brush of your lashes, on your rosy blushed cheeks. I wonder how we ended up in this carousal ride, circling around, flailing and flying, arms in the air, eyes closed, mesmerized. Did I once roll and ice blue pair of dice? … Continue reading And it’s hard to say you don’t :: Two tune Saturday

There are so many stories that can come from studying someone up close, letting your intuitions come forward, look past perceptions and assumptions. The beauty of what lies beneath the surface, what can be seen in the eyes and in the way our body’s move. I love the writer’s view of this song, lyrically speaking.

Like a child you can’t control :: song of the day

Keep Art Alive :: Art by Caia Koopman “Some people hide their emotions, and some people show too much. I’m aiming for somewhere central.” Some days it amazes me how quickly time passes, how far I have already traveled in this life, and yet, how often adolescent, and naive, I feel. I still play music far too loud in the car, and I sing-a-loud; my own little concert on wheels as I role along the 101 freeway. I still feel confused by love, and people, and the dynamics between finding someone who fits with who you are, and actually taking … Continue reading Like a child you can’t control :: song of the day

You’ve lost so much. What if I can’t make up for that? :: Beginners

4. Beginners (2010) movies seen in 2013 “We are the same” scene. Beginners Theme Suite :: Roger Neill, Dave Palmer and Brian Reitzell Unconventional love stories with flawed and very real characters are my favorite love stories. I am also quite fond of honest takes on love, friendship and family (family in a broad spectrum sense, be it genetic families or families of choice). Even if, at times, a story hits on personal pain or recognizable flaws that are hard to watch, I still find myself drawn to these stories. Beginners has all of that, and though I felt myself … Continue reading You’ve lost so much. What if I can’t make up for that? :: Beginners
