« forget me not | Main | lost causes »



episode 398 is here! it's me with a few sad songs songs in tow, and some thoughts about trying and failing. i'm in a melancholy mode these days, which finds me strategizing about hope and the future and where (and where not) to find them. so much of our lives are centered around work and desire and attempts to succeed. to convince others. or just ourselves, perhaps? all for good reason, i know. success is great. and we can't there without trying. no doubt.

but what about the big dreams that never work? and never will? for me, those're the ones around my shoulders. and at the bottom of my heart. they're the ones i want and need the most. and the ones i'll never have. strangely, "trying" makes sense even here. i don't know why. it just does.

i hope you'll listen and visit the links below:
