Melancholy goodness

Bill Callahan AKA Smog. Loving him today. It's getting darker and quieter a little faster than I had anticipated. He seems fitting for what seems like the first actual fall day I've felt here in Baltimore. It was everything- Windy, a somewhat peeking sun, denim jacket, tomato basil soup at the cafe and a new membership at the neighborhood video store. The season is a combination of settling into a cozy nook in your mind and your home and a sense of ....despair? I'm not sure if that's the right word but there's almost a comfort in the anticipation of a quietly approaching winter depression. This city seems suited for early dark nights.


  1. i know what you mean about the nights getting darker and something unsettling, settling! how about you just move back?? cocoa and fires and winter crafts while we listen to gospel music. :)

  2. yea, some 50s gospel/blues sounds good right about now(and fleet foxes)...schnapps and cocoa with my peeps is always good times girl!

  3. Unfortunately I know exactly what you mean! It's like at least we're familiar with that awful winter feeling-that's kind of comforting in a weird way! Only one winter in unfamiliar Baltimore for you though!
