Beautiful Day Without You


What shall I do with all the days and hours
That must be counted where I see thy face?
How shall I charm the interval that lowers
Between this time and that sweet time of grace?
~Frances Anne Kemble

Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle
Everything I do is stitched with its color.
~W.S. Merwin, “Separation”

    O_o at the whole list, just awesome. Apparat has that great mix where you can either just zone out, or rock your head along with the beat. Love it.

    Eisbaden is already! enjoy.
    Somnovore: Apparat for me is the best greatist artist in the world, the new album of Moderat is amazing!

    The Unforgettable Fire is the fourth studio album by Irish rock band U2, released in 1984. Far more ambient and abstract than the hard-hitting War, it was at the time, the band’s most marked change in direction, and was the group’s first collaboration with Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois.

    i really love this blog!

The song makes its imprint
in the air, making itself felt,
a felt world. Here, there,
the stunned silence

of knowing I will not remember
what I heard;

futures that will never happen,
a fluidity we cannot achieve
except as a child
creating possibility.

This is the untranslatable song
hidden in the earth.
