'I'm chained upon the face of time
feelin' full of foolish rhyme
there ain't no dark till something shines
I'm bound to leave this dark behind'- townes van zandt
i'm not great at cheering people up. i'm a negative creep and i see the downside of everything. i am, however, prone to moments of pure joy, and of great hope. this verse from townes van zandt's 'rex's blues' always takes me there. i hope it helps.

i'm an old man now. i'm well past the age of wondering why brilliance is so often ignored and mediocrity is rewarded.
but... there are moments like this...when i wonder...how can they not see...how can they not hear...it's so powerful...like thunder...a lone lightning bolt...it flashes over the fields of dead weeds....and we wonder if we saw it...yes..yes...it was there...because they sky glows...and the stars seem different...and the ground still...rumbles...beneath...our...feet...

a perfect duet. listen to how their voices dance, then wrap themselves, around each other. leads trade effortlessly. gorgeous.

i've had this album for years, but somehow it's slipped through the cracks. put it on a few weeks ago, on a whim, and have become obsessed.
the sun shines down on a planet of mirrors, the slick mountains jettison all who dare to mount them, a dim room at the end of a dismal stairwell, it's ok, you know, i will not lie to you....
check it out.
