The ONLY thing that has ever truly been there for me has been my music. Helping me understand myself. Helping me get through life. Through heartache. Feeling grateful to have a voice but even more grateful to have a heart that allows me to express & feel things the way I do. No matter how intense. #thisisme#bushwickart#brooklynartist#instagay#songwriter#songwriterslife

Part 3 - An Alternative Ending
Wherein, a new shape has emerged, and being pleased with itself, makes itself again, and yet again, continuing. Focus becomes dissolution, the past becomes washed in the momentum of intention and everything is funnled into the singular and the void. Being nothing, the vacuum seeks itself and finds by looking outward, that which it is not, and contrast begings anew.
“Fiery spirits or devils are such as commonly work by blazing stars, fire-drakes, or ignes fatui; which lead men often in flumina aut praecipitia, saith Bodine, lib. 2. Theat. Naturae, fol. 221(…) likewise they counterfeit suns and moons, stars oftentimes, and sit on ship masts: In navigiorum summitatibus visuntur; and are called dioscuri, as Eusebius l. contra Philosophos, c. xlviii. informeth us, out of the authority of Zenophanes; or little clouds, ad motum nescio quem volantes; which never appear, saith Cardan, but they signify some mischief or other to come unto men, though some again will have them to pretend good, and victory to that side they come towards in sea fights, St. Elmo’s fires they commonly call them, and they do likely appear after a sea storm.” #anatomyofmelancholyreadalong 🔥
