I don’t know if this counts as a post. I’ve had a lot of topics on my mind lately and I’m trying to pull my brain together enough to write on them, because when topics really matter, they deserve to read like art. Anyway, hopefully I’ll get around to them, though it’s been crazy lately, what with the whole wanting to die thing.
So I want to share with you a song by Damien Jurado called “Working Titles.” My sweet sister introduced me to it. Just so beautiful, especially these lyrics:
“You could mess up my life in a poem
Have me divorced by the time of the chorus”
“You’re no him, but he’s you, only better”
“I wasn’t lying when I said this was over
I have questions that lead to more questions”
“I want you and the skyline, these are my demands”
Here are two covers of the same song, the first by The Tallest Man on Earth and Idiot Wind, and the second by Ian Lindsay.
Anyway, team, I hope you do good things. And I hope you know Jesus loves you. And I hope you know I say that with total sincerity.
Also–finally–Thanksgiving break! Whoot.
