I have Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" on repeat

There's something beautiful about turning pain into music.
Running away from a breakup - with a band, a girl, and (in his own words) himself.
Spending a winter with nothing to do but think and make music.
And, then, come spring... well, a terribly sad but terribly beautiful collection of songs shows itself.
Like flowers.

I want... I want to turn the things I feel into music. Hayley says I can empathize with people. I want to turn that into songs (mostly, I feel like songs I write are about ideas. Thoughts, not feelings)

I'm tired now, I think I'll go to bed. Look at the moon tonight, if you get a chance. It's whole.

Goodnight, love.


  1. *smile*

    this is a beautiful post.

  2. That's one of my strings songs. It kind of makes me want to vomit, but, in a good way. And Bon Iver's not the only one that writes songs like that. [And I hope you understand that this is very much a compliment.]

    I could get used to this whole blogging more than once every six months thing.
