Within You Without You
I hope people don’t conflate my extended Eleanor Rigby years with this idea that I am forever and eternally depressed! There are a lot of things that make me happy, things that are quite small to some. I like looking at where buildings and trees meet the sky. I don’t think I can explain why that makes me happy, but it does. Astronomy used to terrify me with it’s enormity, but I quite like looking at star systems now. I like deeply emotional music, I like pop music too, I spent days and days wandering around singing the first few bars of My Humps by the Black Eyed Peas, why I’m not sure. I just liked it. But also sometimes I understand things better through music. I still go back and read Lewis Carroll books, because the ridiculousness of them is so fun.
I liked this album by Tori Amos when I was going crazy, I think now looking back on it it’s because it’s about positive disintegration.

The Littlest Birds by the Be Good Tanyas. Aw, so sweet!
