"A part of me drifts away with you and will never return..."

You only are free when you realize you belong no place — you belong every place — no place at all.
~Maya Angelou~

I lost my lover and friend this weekend.

Well, technically I have been losing him for a long time, but it just became official a few days ago. The long and short of it is; 
1. Our daemons didn’t match, and, 
2. I have a bunch of solo-growing to do.

It sucks terribly.

But having tried everything to save it, and failing, I had no choice but to release.
Now, everyone needs a release song. Something to carry you on that lonely walk away from something you never wanted to leave. This one here is mine. It found me this morning and held my hand.

Off of Little Dragon’s latest LP, Nabuma Rubberband, I give you, Paris.

I’ll miss you DanDan.


P.S. Yukimi is only second to Sade. Goddess and Oracle.


  1. *Hugsyoutightly*
    You are very brave for sharing this. Solo growing is very important and very painful and then really beautiful.
    The things that are meant to be in your life (I know, I loathe platitudes also) will always come back no matter how far they drift off. Letting go is very brave.
    This is beautiful song (especially because of the context, I must admit, otherwise I wouldn't like it).
    My release song was Kelela's 'Keep it Cool'

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words Varyanne! You actually made me tear up and here I thought I was all cried out :) And thanks for putting me on Kelela, she's amazing. As for only liking the song in this context, I will make a convert of you yet. Yukimi and co can do no wrong :)
