you don't understand he said

and then before you know
can't even listen to the radio
every song's like a black hole
pulls you in and it won't let you go

I have no opinion about this. And I have no opinion about that.

"Night, you fucking challenger, here I am"

Flew to Amsterdam on Monday for one day. And my god, the sky up there.
You should see it.
On take off I just feel completely terrified and exhilarated and privileged.
And that combination of those feelings + whatever is going on with the clouds.
It really doesn't matter what the clouds are doing, they're always doing something great.
I guess it's just a completely different way of viewing something that I take for granted.
From plane windows I've seen some of the most spectacular sunsets of my life and the Aurora Borealis.
Look, this won't do it justice but anyway - this was what was happening on Monday in the sky above Luton:

Don't forget your hat

'cause there's changes in the Ocean
and there's changes in the Sea
and there's changes in my own true love
but there ain't no change in me

my goodness I have just finished the book
it is an autobiography
set to words
about music
very very lovely
and full of heart.
makes me feel completely
ignorant and naive
or sheltered (or something)
about music
and life.
i did not realise it would end
the way it did
i had to read it twice
and remind myself
it was a non-fiction book
before it really struck me
and then it really struck me

i tried to play
Mendelssohn (op.64)
on the violin
(the easy kids version)
but getting there
