The first 50 mins of Animal Crossing New Leaf in English!

I was having a dream. I don’t know what it was, but when I woke up, I had this awful realization that I was awake. It hit me like a brick in the groin. […] I didn’t want to wake up. I was having a much better time asleep. And that’s really sad. It was almost like a reverse nightmare, like when you wake up from a nightmare you’re so relieved. I woke up into a nightmare. […] Life is a nightmare.

I was very disappointed. The sound from the 17th century organ in the 800 year old cathedral didn’t sound heavenly, it sounded brown and dry and sparse

Just a few weeks ago I went to a concert of choral music in a small church on the invitation of a friend and experienced something I’d not experienced in a years:

As the orchestra started and the harmonies of the singers danced and phased in and out The air in the church filled with a warm golden colour and bubbling white shapes. It had triggered my synaesthesia
