You can never see further than your headlights—an old slice of trucker philosophy that makes more sense with each passing year, the way I move through life, pretending that I know where the road is heading even though I never have a clue. Time and again, I must learn that I can get ready for dinner and I can get ready for bed and not much else.

Forse 3 |Important Records, 2015 | Bandcamp

One of the finest night-driving songs that I know.

Each night in 2020, I wrote a short post for a series called Notes From the End of a World because I wanted to etch these days into my memory. Before the world changed completely.

Nostalgia

Korpo, Finland. I remember believing the world would make sense when I grew older. But it never did, and it probably won’t.

Solitude

It seems perverse that a deeper sense of community would come from living someplace remote rather than among the crowds of the city.
