Break Away…

25 Jun

I’m currently on the train going to a Smith Westerns and Chairlift concert, my natural state.

I love the train, being able to get from one place to another at set times without stop-and-go traffic or turbulence. I like being effortlessly (on my part, I sure hope the train is working hard!) carried away.

Good songs can do that too, carry you to a different place. I almost always listen to the “Cassadaga” album lying on my bed, eyes closed, mind following Conor Oberst’s lead. It sounds silly to write, but I treat that album like a fine wine. As much as I love and cherish it, I’d never choose to have it nightly with dinner. It’s got to be set aside for special occasions, when I’m in the mood to really appreciate it.

Currently listening to: All Die Young by Smith Westerns
