Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn’t very much. Language consists of five basic sounds produced by the vocal cords. They are the vowels a, e, i, o, u. The other sounds are consonants produced by air pressure: s, f, g, and so forth. Do you believe some combination of such basic sounds could ever explain who you are, or the ultimate purpose of the universe, or even what a tree or stone is in its depth?
Kings of Leon- Arizona
From Nat “King” Cole to Kings of Leon…
This is one of their most solid, well-rounded, simply stunningly beautiful pieces. One that, if there was any doubt, reminds me why I love their work so.

Love love love.

Love. Love. Love.
Do all things with passion.
Your handwriting. The way you walk. Which china pattern you choose. It’s all giving you away. Everything you do shows your hand. Everything is a self-portrait. Everything is a diary.
