So can you understand?
Why I want a daughter while I’m still young
I wanna hold her hand
And show her some beauty
Before this damage is done
so i fall for you like a fool for gold
coz you look so pure and i love your voice
i can hear the cracks of your youthful heart
and it makes me wanna be
a part of that
underoath

underoath

i just realized something about creativity.

it’s rather spontaneous (at least for me). 

i can’t plan out what i’m going to create before i create it. i have to just start creating and see what i produce. 

example 1: typography. i’ve recently started a typography project (click here: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjxEeNtB) where i take a quote and a picture of mine and put them together. when i begin, i never have an idea in mind of what the final project will look like. i just take a picture that is relevant and play around with it for an hour or two until i get an effect that i like. it’s a bit like rolling a dice until you get the number you want: terribly time-consuming. but i think, for now, it’s the only way that works.

example 2: songwriting. every now and then a random phrase will come to me, i will write it down and a whole page of lyrics will follow. i don’t sit down, say “this is what i’m going to write about” and start writing. i sit down and start writing. 

i have no idea why i never have a plan before i start. but i’m currently satisfied with the results AND the process, so i’ll keep at it. 

maybe you’re like me and you’ve stopped writing/taking photos/drawing/whatever because you feel like you don’t have any ideas. my advice: just sit down (or stand, lie down, whatever) and start creating. it may take a while to get a result you can be proud of, but creating is work. it’s not always easy and for some (most?) people a successful creation is not based on major breakthroughs but rather on major effort. 

You glorify the past
When the future dries up

say it isn’t so

just because the world has never ended

doesn’t mean it never will 

In our rooms filled with laughter,
We make hope from every small disaster

I’m a huge fan of the lyric a day project. It’s the best. A few days ago I suggested they do this song. I feel like a celebrity. kindasortamaybe. 

All joking aside, I absolutely love this song and this design. Miike Snow, ftw!
