People think I get most of my inspiration from books, but that's actually the least common source I draw on.
I get inspiration from everything: from the quiet, tender moments that exist only in my memory, from the sky when it glows bright red orange at dusk, from the compassion of other human beings, from film, from anime, from television, and music.
This performance from Bon Iver is quite possibly my favourite live performance of music ever.
Language is a limited medium. No matter how hard we try we can't capture all the beauty of a particular moment, all the emotion, in a sequence of written symbols.
Songs like this, though. They make me want to try.
