Trains To Boston

Into every life...

I was once trying describe the reasons that a person, in an abject state, may use to hold on to life. By which I mean those little things that become important in the dark of night, that compel in the moment of pain, that consume and focus the mind away from despair.

There are some that are obvious, to surmount pain you make an itemized list, the next entry, the one after that. You focus on the immediate struggle not the impossible goal. When I started to describe tasking one's self to survive the winter by focusing on seeing one last spring I started to cry.

  1. Hard Believer - Fink
  2. The Depths - Frankie Rose
  3. Before the Words - My Brightest Diamond
  4. Daughters - Wild Beasts
  5. Way with Silence - Vogue Dots
  6. The Windfall (Maddlisnky Remix) - Hidden Orchestra
  7. Prayer in C - Lilly Wood and the Prick
  8. Beatcity - Still Corners

  21. Coming Home - Leon Bridges
  22. Bye Bye - Destroyer
  23. Friends - Solomun
