Unwieldy soundtrack to a story I am writing.

A guide, intentionally vague:

1. sea fog; a bright, backlit grey

2. a fall, an abandonment, a bicycle twice stolen

3. an absent rock collector and his nephew

4. "we cannot agree on human nature"

5. Marx and his forests and animals

6. the greenhouse - an escape

7. "a collection without theme or end"

8. in which fate steps in and upsets her; a dispute over ownership

9. avoidance (of conflict); a slight compulsive nature

10. Duchamp's shattered glass

11. more fog; the pet cemetery; resolutions

Wonderful. The twice stolen bicycle is especially evocative.

These mixes tend to be among the most interesting here.
