Are You The One I've Been Waiting For?

A lot of things break my heart, lately. This Nick Cave song is one of them.

You know when you get full-body goosebumps...

The firstborn must be the strongest, despite the damage and the toll.

It's simple. Just like this portrait of Angela.

That song. It's my song for/with someone. Someone I love(d) and due to circumstance could never fully be with.

I've listened to that song on repeat endlessly.

I can't listen to that song without crying. ever.

In fact, I'm welling up right now just hearing the song in my head.

I was hoping and not that Nick would play it on Saturday night. My heart would break and my makeup would run, but my soul would have been fulfilled.

Out of sorrow entire worlds have been built
Out of longing great wonders have been willed

Holly and I almost listened to Nick Cave earlier in the car... instead we listened to the Screaming Trees.

Beautiful portrait, James.
