I don’t believe in gender being a big fact, but I suppose you should know that I am a girl. I enjoy fairytales, and though I pretend not to care, I try to pretend I am one. I don’t pretend I am the metaphor of a fairytale, but rather that I am the protagonist in a fairytale. Silly, don’t you think?
Anyways, I have had one writing blog on this website before. I shall try my best to update this blog or post some new tidbit at least once a week. But as school is very busy, I often will have to bend my goal.
One thing that I hold very dear is the artist Sky Sailing. It is Adam Young, and it is an album from when he was still stuck in Minnesota. He wrote the songs during his insomnia. And they are beautiful. They are not pretty. They are beautiful. Adam Young himself I do not find attractive, but I find him beautiful. Here is an excerpt from his letter:
“If by chance you ever feel as though you’ve come to know these songs or empathize with the emotions therein, please consider yourself a friend of mine because in a manner of speaking, you know me. As the saying goes, one can truly glimpse the artist through his/her art, and that expression certainly proves faithful in my case. This music is my heart and soul. This is who I am.
With that being said, I am so very glad to meet you.
With all due respect,
And though I am not a music composer, I am a writer at heart.
With everything said, I am pleased to meet you.
If any of you were able to stand my ramblings thus far and are interested enough in the obsessions of an old-fashioned adolescent girl(another fact!), you can find Sky Sailing’s letter and website here: http://www.skysailingmusic.com/default.aspx
