Meditations on the Fall
"A simple and sincere account of his own life, and not merely what he has heard of other men's lives; some such account as he would send to his kindred from a distant land; for if he has lived sincerely, it must have been in a distant land to me."

This is going to be only my second autumn. The first was 12 years ago, but also here. Then, I was a freshman in college. More accurately I was out of high school. I was out on my own for the first time; physically at least. Outside of my home.

There's a phrase that reoccurs in the book about vanity records. "Real people music." I think it's well understood by looking at blue album photo, then green album photo, then red album photo and seeing how becoming unreal is no bueno.

We live in an a time when you can access new things so well that you arent stuck listening to the same albums over and over again. But music is something that gets better the more you hear it. I remember how the darkness doubled, I recall lightning struck itself.

our lives are structured in days so that we perfect The Day.


I love the simultaneous combo of hot and cold water. Or air. Hot and cold temperatures. Florida springs, fire.
