~ Vibe

Songs barren of words, but not of heart, emotion, life – for letting your background be subsumed unto such soundscapes of instrumentational layers and lives, one after another, one after another, like the stripes on the road below you and your wheels.

~ Aesthetic ~

Thrumming chords and orchestrations, melodies made from melancholic sources, for thinking-about-your-entire-life-to, for building to a galvanizing mania to, only to return to silence – and do it all over again on the next one.

~ images and words from my journal of memes to pair with the playlist:

~ George Orwell, Coming Up For Air
The whole conviction of my life now rests upon the belief that loneliness, far from being a rare and curious phenomenon, is the central and inevitable fact of human existence.
– Thomas Wolfe
“…Find the others.” ~ Timothy Leary
