words & tunes

tuesdays are a good day for wise words
and sweet music.

in light of the post i wrote last week
about "treadmill love",
i think this quote from Captain Corelli's Mandolin
is a good follow up . . .

“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are.
Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.”

and some music for you . . .
i told herb just the other day
that if i could only listen to one album
for the rest of my life,
that it would be
"Berlin Serengeti"
by Radio Citizen

seriously, this stuff can match
any mood -
light hearted,
road trip-y,
celebratory . . .

it is all there.

so, go, enjoy!

what is the one album YOU could listen to over and over and over again, if you could only pick one to listen to for the rest of your days?
