1924us:

Just live. Not all of us ride horses, climb mountains, have our own gardens, work on 1950’s Land Rovers or what have ya, and that is a-ok. You don’t have to fit in the confines of living “old-school” or trying to be “genuine”. Do your day to day and enjoy that! Your journey is just as captivating as anyone’s, regardless of how many filters make it look good on @instagram. It’s okay to just live, no one can ask anything more from you, and you can only one-up it by living well. - 1924

Amen.

"Light Rails" - Birmingham, Alabamaby Bill Fitzgibbons
We’ve been seeing a lot of great public art like this in Atlanta, both in terms of murals and in terms of installation art using light. Glad it’s happening elsewhere. -Wendy
From a feature on Tulsa Public Radio:

A San Antonio artist has won a prestigious national award. Light, in fact, is the medium of the piece created by Bill FitzGibbons.“I installed in downtown Birmingham, Alabama; a public artwork called Light Rails,” FitzGibbons said. “It was put in an art deco 1930s railroad underpass.”The place was a wide and very dark railroad bridge separating downtown Birmingham from a neat new park and ball field the city built. But as FitzGibbons explained, it was not an inviting place.“[It was] rather dark and had some transients hanging out in it, and there were some safety issues,” he said.Birmingham could have just added lights to the area, but instead they had FitzGibbons add art that was full of light."And the art deco architecture was just perfect for a light installation," he said. "I wanted to respect the architecture, at the same time turn it into a dynamic, energized artwork.”

Jazz makes me feel like everything’s going to be okay.

Blue Train (Full Album) | John Coltrane

Slowly realising and coming to terms with an aspect of myself today. I don’t know how I can recover from this, but being aware of it is a start at least.

Apart from my close friends, who are supportive in their own ways, I’m ever so grateful for having access to music that never judges and is always a faithful and patient companion as I work through my issues.

I can be sad with my music for as long as I want, without feeling apologetic or that I need to ‘get better’ quickly so that my confidantes won’t feel upset or over exhausted as a result.

Music really can save lives.
