distance

And uptown downtown
A thousand miles between us
She's waiting for the night to fall
Let it fall, I'll never make it in time

Sound is the color I know, oh
Sound is what keeps me before your eyes
And sound of your breath in the cold
And oh, the sound will bring me home again

-- Beirut, East Harlem

Elijah turned two at the end of January. He is a caring, intelligent, active little guy


Work Computer Upgrade

When you spend your working hours staring into a computer screen(s), you better have a good setup. It has taken a few years to get just right, but I believe I have a really excellent home office setup./ at my home office. One that has taken a few years to get just right:


Elijah at a year and a half

Elijah is learning something new every week/month. Walking, baby talking, playing, sorting pots and pans for us, swimming, co-bike rides, chasing the dog amongst other things. He is a fantastic little guy and reminds us of all the good things in life : )

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!
Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!! (2008)

This album has been a staple of my music collection since it's release in 2008. I think it is one of Nick Cave's best albums. The album is moody and full of lyrical imagery. Dark, trancy at times such as on the track "Night of the Lotus eaters". The lyrics of this album are very strong and is what draws me back to it time and again. The track "Midnight Man" is an absolute gem:

Hold that chrysalis in your palm See it split and change It won't do you any harm It's just trying to rearrange

It was born to live a day Now it flies up from your hand It's beautiful It's the one they call your ever loving man

Wolves have carried your babies away Oh, your kids drip from their teeth The nights are long and the day Is bitter cold beyond belief...

...Close your eyes, sleep in him Dream of your lost sons and daughters Me, I'll raise up my dorsal fin And glide up and down the waters

The closing track "More news from nowhere" though just under eight minutes could go sixteen and I would be quite happy to listen to it all.
