landing lights


friends,

 

episode 475 is here, and finds me balancing nervous hopefulness. if things go well, the podcast will be on temporary hiatus for a week or two... if things don't go as planned, i'll be back with more, per usual, next weekend. either way, there will be more here soon.

 

i hope you'll listen, and stay-tuned.

 

love,

russell

it just is


hello friends,

 

a new week and episode 474 are here. this one brings me to a few little songs, and a bit of continued meandering as changes unfold.

 

thank you for being here.

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

 

ps - if u don't already know the end of the tour (2015, see the trailer), or the spectacular now (2013, see the trailer), you should definitely seek them out. both movies are directed by james ponsoldt, and really really good

chagrin


friends,

 

episode 473 finds the world where i wish it wasn't - both mine and ours. i'm humbled by this, frequently, and curious how our notions of "the answer" fit into it all. work, patience, and hope for the best, are all called for - so i will, wholeheartedly. but it also seems, no matter where things end up, that it'll never really be the place we dream of.

 

this is sad, i guess. but not hopelessly so. it leaves me with the thought that learning to love and mend the broken pieces is important. maybe that's all we have? which makes me want to do it all the more. illogically, maybe. and sort of beautifully too.

 

i hope you're well.

and that you'll listen.

 

love,

russell

slowly


friends,

 

tonight is episode 472. it's a small podcast with me and a few songs, cautiously hopeful that things are going as they should. not much, i know. but my heart is in it.

 

i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell
