hw and i had a conversation last night about a certain artiste writing angsty songs earlier on vs the happier ones later on.

i remarked about how much i like his songs, especially the ones that sounded hopeful. not too high, not too low.. but just right about when its going on upwards.

it makes me feel like we're all truly blissful for a few moments, then we spend all the rest of that time chasing after where it came from, looking for or holding on to traces of it, nostalgia, photographs, acquiring something that holds significance for us from the past, toys, memorabilia.

we can't ignore both the past and the future. but here is where we are. so what do we do, where we can hold it all together? where do we stand, to ride out all the highs and lows that life has to offer?
