adventure is right here.

I can't stop listening to Bon Iver.
There is beauty in his words and music.
It makes me want to run away. Far away from everything. 
How would that be? To just get away, by myself. Just me, and my thoughts, and my dreams. Ready to make our way into the world.
How would that be? To be irresponsible. To be lost. To be gone.
To be on a journey.
To have an adventure.
But I know, this life is a journey. I'm on an adventure. And my wandering heart wants to leave this place and start a new adventure. But my stable head begs me to stay. Please stay. Finish what you've started.
And I know I can't quit. I can't leave yet.
My journey isn't over.
So I suppose, that this music telling me to leave, is actually whispering that I should stay.
Stay and make right now, and right here, everything that I think I would gain by leaving.
And that's some kind of sweet freedom, isn't it?

p.s. holocene is my song of choice at the moment.


  1. I was trying to explain to Josh tonight how amazingly wonderful Bon Iver is. His songs ALWAYS put me in the mood to write. I don't think Josh understood. Bon Iver would understand.

  2. And at once I knew, I was not magnificent. Best line I've EVER heard in music history.


Tell me your thoughts on the subject.
