mom: what did you get me for mother’s day
Song of Good Hope by Glen Hansard (from Rhythm and Repose)
May the song of good hope walk with you through everything
escalators are better than elevators because when escalators break they turn into stairs but when elevators break they turn into vertical coffins
We may not be hopeless,
But we’re still helpless in the end
Just remember you’re floating
Remember the love that we are in
So inconsistently we swim
A time with family and our friends
I know I’m not hopeless,
I’m only helpless in the end
I know you love questions,
But they go unanswered in the end
Did you forget you’re floating?
Did you forget that we’re only men?
“What did Time smell like? Like dust and clocks and people. And if you wondered what Time sounded like, it sounded like water running in a dark cave and voices crying and dirt dropping down upon hollow box lids, and rain. And, going further, what did Time look like? Time looked like snow dropping silently into a black room or it looked like a silent film in an ancient theater, one hundred billion faces falling like those New Year balloons, down and down into nothing.”
—The Martian Chronicles (Ray Bradbury)
Miniature Tigers - Tell It To The Volcano
A year ago today I was fallin’ in love with you
I didn’t know how I could tell you
You were breaking my heart, shrinking my head
I couldn’t get out of my bed
