Where Soul Meets Body

"Without music, life would be a mistake."
--Friedrich Nietzsche


She was seventeen years old when she put headphones on and let a song change her.

It happened that winter of her senior year of high school as she sat on the couch, unsuccessfully trying to knit a scarf. She manipulated the needles through dark blue yarn, but there were knots and holes and she was getting frustrated. She was never very crafty, but she was trying to learn. She stopped to take a break and decided to play a song from an album she hadn't listened to yet.

Marching Bands of Manhattan by Death Cab for Cutie on Grooveshark

She wasn't someone who knew how to knit. She wasn't sure yet, didn't know exactly what kind of person she was, but as she sat there in the dark, just listening, she could finally hear the kind of person that she had always wanted to be.

Less than two weeks until I finally get to see my favorite band play live.

  3. Ah! You haven't seen Death Cab live yet? They are amazing. (Or were.) I haven't seen them since 2006. I saw them on the Transatlantacism tour and the Plans tour. Jenny Lewis opened for them on the Plans tour and they played in a movie theater in Santa Barbara. It was amazing. What's your favorite song from them? I think mine is "Song for Kelly Huckabee" from the Forbidden Love E.P.

  4. This is a beautifully written post. It resonates with me because I have a similar story about how I got into and the first time I saw my favorite band, Jack's Mannequin. I hope you have a fantastic time, dear!
