it's crazy to me that music can carry so much weight. I think it has to do with a songwriter putting a part of their heart/soul into their songs. elliott smith songs continue to impress me. pretty much every one he's written has impacted me in some way. I like knowing that even though great musicians & artists have come & gone...we can still enjoy the things they have believed in. I'm feeling really lucky these days to be surrounded by so many awesome things & people. It makes me wonder how much life has in store and i'm looking forward to whatever comes next.
