music monday

Photo from Key West that we visited last week.

Planning and dealing with the building permits of the café takes pretty much all my waking hours at the moment so I'm not a fun blogger as you can tell. Why don't you listen to this playlist in the meanwhile. 
That song by Elliott Smith though... yet another seriously talented artist who ended up taking his life due to depression caused by a combination of early life family abuse and drugs. Can you feel the pain in his voice? Like so often it seems the most torn and fragile souls are prone for expressing and creating music and art with a higher level of emotional intensity. Turning pain and darkness into art is such a powerful creative tool, regardless if done as a conscious choice or an instinctive need.
