I’m listening to The Books, sitting outside in this gorgeous weather, cranking out a paper. I can dig it.
Update: Spent 12 hours of yesterday writing one page of a paper. I seem to be lacking the somewhat foreign skill called “focus”. This has left me twelve hours behind schedule. I’d rather sing a song about the independence and soul of Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. I’d rather write a short film AND film it. I love you writing, but today I can’t stop listening to Johnny Coltrane, and I am riding away on the Blue Train losing myself in his saxophone sounds. My mind wants to float away to wherever this jazz wants to take me.
This is Narayan, love-child of my awesome cousins out in LA. Haha, I stole these from Facebook because I felt as though the Tumblr world should be exposed to these adorable photos also.
The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.” —Self-Reliance by Ralph Waldo Emerson (via shaganeh)
