paper bones


friends,

 

episode 516 is here, inspired by the jon pattie song home (from the ep 3 2 1), and the new album skeleton tree by nick cave.

 

the subjective perception of beauty is something quite astonishing to me. it likely doesn't need saying, but trying feels important, nonetheless.

 

i hope you'll listen.

stranded in the ocean


friends,

 

this week's podcast finds me inspired by the new ep 3 2 1 by jon pattie. specifically, jon's song stranded in the ocean is quite beautiful, and points me toward related themes of storytelling, metaphor, emotion, and the mysteriousness that it always is to feel connected to a song, a moment/person/experience, etc.

 

the fact that i can't fully grasp, or express, the intertwining strands of connection and meaning makes their perception all the more humbling.

 

episode 515 is my report on these and other things.

 

i hope you'll take a listen.
