whatever is true

Image

do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – think about such things.

music // 05

sound: wye oak | shriek

opinion: loving this new album from wye oak. her voice faintly reminds me of victoria’s from beach house, and some of the tracks have that same dreamy ethereal quality. other songs lean towards a more 80s pop feel; heavier on the synth, electronic drums, etc.. i can already see myself listening to this album a lot in the coming weeks. hope you enjoy.

 

age

Image

that is impressive, the age of a man! that summarizes all his life. this maturity of his has taken a long time to achieve. it was grown through so many obstacles conquered, so many serious illnesses cured, so many griefs appeased, so many despairs overcome, so many dangers unconsciously passed. it has grown through so many desires, so many hopes, so many regrets, so many lapses, so much love. the age of a man, that represents a good load of experience and memories. in spite of decoys, jolts, and ruts, you have continued to plod like a horse drawing a cart.

thousands

Image
out of the thousands
who are known,
or who want to be known
as poets,
maybe one or two
are genuine
and the rest are fakes,
hanging around the sacred precincts
trying to look like the real thing.
needles to say
i am one of the fakes,
and this is my story.
