Comment:

you meet someone and connect. you can't help it, your conversations range from intense to more intense. isn't that what life is for? but... a glitch. you're in a beautiful, wonderful 5 year relationship. and you're leaving for a cross country roadtrip in two weeks with this person you're in a relationship with. these are the choices you make. this mix is not a "breakup mix", because there is no breaking up here; rather, it is the sound in the hollow of what was left behind, the grieving.

title from "school night".

cover is actually a folded booklet - the top right being the front (a poem by Mark Strand called "Keeping Things Whole"), then the inside is the bottom half ("The Journey" by Mary Oliver), and then the Walt Whitman is the back of the cover.
