SOMETIMES MY HEART is too hungry for its own good. It wants what it can't have, and it's restless, always restless.
In this urban city, I constantly long to escape to grassy meadows and that rustic cottage hidden deep in the woods (cabinporn on tumblr isn't helping);
every weed that protrudes between cracks in the pavement is a source of unintentional beauty. In Italy last summer, my parents saw an old house concealed under a forest of ivy, it's original material barely visible. They thought it was ruining the house and its very foundation, but I was secretly thankful that nature had found a way to intercept civilization.
Likewise, as soon as day turns to night when I visit the countryside, I'm surrounded by endless rows of hills and expanse, and I feel a small pang of loneliness and a heavy desire for the energy and pulse of the city life. I'm lucky that I found a place like the ones pictured here, a combination of nature
in a little back alley of my residential area in this crazy city, one than i can escape to sometimes and just be.
Tomorrow I'm going on a roadtrip to LA for college orientation. Cannot believe that this is now a reality, and that in less than two months I'll be living there full time!
Here are two albums that when discovered, quickly caught and held my attention.
Do yourself a favor and give them a listen, both the album artworks are as great as the music inside!!
Last note: It's taking everything in me and more not to add a quote like "not all who wander are lost"... blame the tumblr/lotr junkie within me.
Mini Roadtrip Playlist:
Daughter 'Still' from the album "If you leave"
