re: those failures


friends,

 

the first week of december brings me to episode 632.

 

it's a short one - just me, some old songs, and a strange sense of resolution.

 

recognizing the certainty of my (obvious + many) failures brings strange equal and opposite feelings to mind:

 

1) disappointment + loathing + embarrassment.

2) awe + gratitude for the odd beauty that's still around it.

 

it's often a lonely feeling,

but we're not alone.

 

i hope you'll listen.


the songs:

- mean (demo fom 201?)

- mean (night beach, 2011)

- anyway, i never meant it (factory sessions ep, 2003)

 

love,

russell
