That ol' lonesome feelin' all the time

Three songs I have been listening to recently:

  1. Just Out Of Reach - Patsy Cline
  2. Shoot The Heart - Apollo Brown
  3. After Thoughts - Oddisee

These songs all make me feel a certain way that I can't explain. Pasty Cline's "Just Out Of Reach" reminds me of the music that my grandad plays when he's down from St Lucia. That soft, romantic, old country music. Well to be honest I don't know if it was romantic or not; I focused more on the melodies rather than the lyrics. But anyways, I was just playing it and my Dad said it reminded him of the music that my grandma used to play before working night shifts on a Sunday. I don't know why that made me happy - I guess I could just picture it in my head nicely. Whenever I listen to it I get filled with this strong, mellow, nostalgic feeling, and I vow to play music from before my time to my children in the future. I mean when are you going to get anymore timeless music?  The other two just have me effortlessly swaying my shoulders and getting in the zone.

November has been approximately 4 seconds long. How has December just crept up on us? I mean the Christmas-y vibe has been building up but now it's actually here. The end of the year has come. When I think back to the early months of 2015 I feel like I'm thinking back to a secret life I had in a parallel universe. How do you describe a present that's also the past because it's coming to an end?

Anyways here's a bunch of photos that sum up the lowkey special month of November. The penultimate month of the year! May we descend into the glorious month of December with wisdom, grace and ugly Christmas jumpers (which are obviously so not ugly.)
