Beauty has as many meanings as man has moods. Beauty is the symbol of symbols. Beauty reveals everything, because it expresses nothing. When it shows us itself, it shows us the whole fiery-coloured world.
"To love purely is to consent to distance, it is to adore the distance between ourselves and that which we love."
–Simone Weil, Gravity & Grace
"Can we talk about the sweetness of listening to a song with someone?
Those moments when neither you nor the one you’re listening with are speaking but presence with the music unfolds as its own conversation. When everything we hold unspoken is given a body through a song’s notes. When you and a homie take the hand of a record and walk alongside it to the rhythm of its beat. When the song opens like a mouth with a question and beacons you onto the temporary porch it’s made of its notes. When you can listen and just be, together. Listening to music together is one of my favorite acts of intimacy."
