To Fall and Fall

Reading: The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevsky (…still)

“The rain began again. It fell heavily, easily, with no meaning or intention but the fulfilment of its own nature, which was to fall and fall.”
(Helen Garner)

It’s been raining steadily for many days now.  This is a gentle storm, soothing and full of grace.  Weather like this calls for a certain set of songs: abundant, clean, sorrowful.
Here’s what I’m listening to today:

(My Rainy Day Playlist)
1. Lover, You Should Have Come Over, Jeff Buckley
2.  Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright, Bob Dylan
3.  Five String Serenade, Mazzy Star
4.  Pale Blue Eyes, The Velvet Underground
5.  Colors and the Kids, Cat Power
6.  All We Ask, Grizzly Bear
7.  Between the Bars, Elliott Smith
8.  Famous Blue Raincoat, Leonard Cohen
9.  Sugar Mountain, Neil Young
10.  The Tourist, Radiohead
11.  Tears Are in Your Eyes, Yo La Tengo
12.  Ode to Divorce, Regina Spektor

13. The Wolves, Bon Iver

Let me make you a mixtape!  Send me you address and check your mailbox.  For now, listen to the rain.

“Water is the driving force of all nature.”
(Leonardo Da Vinci)
