looooove fall, loooooove bryn christopher

Maybe it's fall that calls out all the sweater-wearing, deep thinking, thought provoking music and art and dialogue but even San Anto is feeling it. There's the city's fall arts festivals, which includes fotoseptiembre, the international accordion festival, dia de los muertos, jazzsalive and more (yes, my birthday!).

Then there's new albums like that one of Bryn Christopher. I've been listening to BBC Radio 2 for some time now at work. The accents remind me work is not the only thing in this world and the music selection is American + more/better. Think Otis Redding with 80s music but smart enough to avoid all the techno.

poem : untitled (I get it now)

I get it now
that love of language connecting each word with someone
the roundness the bright knowing coming through
when you say lie back

take it in
