It’s dirty, it’s filthy, it’s paradise.
I’m not telling you to make the world better, because I don’t think that progress is necessarily part of the package. I’m just telling you to live in it. Not just to endure it, not just to suffer it, not just to pass through it, but to live in it. To look at it. To try to get the picture. To live recklessly. To take chances. To make your own work and take pride in it. To seize the moment. And if you ask me why you should bother to do that, I could tell you that the grave’s a fine and private place, but none I think do there embrace. Nor do they sing there, or write, or argue, or see the tidal bore on the Amazon, or touch their children. And that’s what there is to do and get it while you can and good luck at it.
Been told I look like Stevie Nicks by four different people in the last two months, which is one of the best compliments I’ve ever received. Stevie is the ultimate gypsy godness and I’m honored people would even mention us both in the same sentence <3
Wonderful wonderful album, can’t wait to see him perform Feburary 1st at the Casbah!
