You can’t help but become the sun

The first Monday of April and boygenius is today’s soundtrack. “True Blue” is my current favorite, with Lucy Dacus on the lead vocals. I love the lyrics and the sentiment and the wistfulness of the kind of love, or friendship, or both, that is the kind that knows the other more than they know themselves.

This is the kind of song that I catalog deep inside me for many, many listens. The kind of song that will have memories attached to it. The kind of song that will make me cry sometimes, laugh sometimes, and heart-soar sometimes.

Today, it is fresh and new, and it makes me want to go out into the rain and dance and sing.

Song of the Day

I’m stretching my body with yoga. I’m opening my mind with music and meditation. I’m feeding my body and soul. I’m keeping hydrating. I’m hurting through this breakup. I’m surviving. I am changing. I am looking for the sun in the rain.

from “The Film” directed by Kristen Stewart

“When you don’t know who you are,
you fuck around and find out.”

That’s what I’m doing, I think. I’m trying to find out who I am. I’m trying and failing, I’m trying and succeeding, I’m trying and falling, I’m trying and changing, I’m trying and trying again.
