i keep falling in love. i keep searching for something that i cannot explain. i feel pulled by a hunger that cannot be answered. the disorientation that comes with living life in the present moment is intoxicating and destabilizing at times. it's the gift of being a musician, an artist. it's the blessing and curse of passion. it's best not to complain. and not explain. just blame the moon and roll with it.
