I think I am dying.

Actually, I know I am. Very slowly, every single day. But so is everyone else.

Please play this at my funeral (as well as the rest of the songs in the playlist I’ve entitled “I felt a funeral in my brain” in my personal journal.)

She will kick the car and find her friends.

I’ve been completely uninspired to write anything that even remotely resembles something of substance, lately. I apologize. Or maybe I’m just lazy? Sometimes I can’t tell; but these dry spells are killing me…so here I am.

While out and about today, after indulging at Dottie’s (thank you, Kiss! BTW) I ended up buying Iron & Wine‘s Around the Well and simply put, it is amazing. It’s like falling in love over and over and over again (at least my idea of falling in love). The entire album is fantastic, but there are three songs in particular during my first listen-thru that struck me as immediate favorites: Communion Cups and Someone’s Coat, Belated Promise Ring and The Trapeze Swinger. Check them out–now! I’d elaborate on why I fell for these particular songs so quickly, but I’d rather you just listened to them and come out with your own interpretations. (Or maybe I’m just being lazy?)

When I die, I would like The Trapeze Swinger played at my funeral. I’m sure that sounds a bit morbid, but I figure we’re all going to die one day, so I better start putting together my playlist, right? And that song is definitely going to be on it. And I’m sure this isn’t the first time someone has thought/written/said something like this about that song.

Gosh, I love Iron & Wine.
