I’ve been spending more time online lately due to excess of time, starting to run out of time I decided to write in here. I didn’t know what song I wanted to write about though, there was no random song that popped up mysteriously in my life cuing this post. Then I looked up at my tabs and this song was still up from before.
“We’re a thousand miles from comfort…”
Juanes, Aracaju, January 2014, Brasil, Dream Team, Projeto Talk, that bedroom with clean white sheets, windows open, tropical breeze, those first few days exploring and photographing the city with Gabi and Dudu, laying in bed voxing Steph Freund back home about experiences in a new home, this song on repeat,
“There’s no place I’d rather be…”
Bebe Souza, “this band is FUCKING AMAZING”, I knoooww riightt, any outdoor bar along the Orla, Los Arcos, baixariiaaa, infinite beaches, these Brazilian boys and the love tales that follow,
“Exalted in the sea…”
Lucas Prado, the end of the beach, flailing out the passenger window of his car, true feelings of freedom, utter and complete happiness, the fire flowing out of the oil rigs, tiny opaque crabs, that 18 year old on the 4-wheeler, “Can I have a ride?”,
“No, no no, no, no place I’d rather be!”
