Simon, Steven Wilson and I.

STILL CAN’T BELIEVE I’VE MET STEVEN WILSON. Great performance! I had the honor to get all the members except Nick Beggs to sign my touring book that I bought before the concert. Steven Wilson is just not a great musician to me, he also happens to be my personal god. So, I was lucky enough to be blessed by him tonight.

My heart stopped several times today. I didn’t think I’d feel that for Guthrie and Marco, but fuck me, I did. We met them at a cafe outside next to the venue. We waited almost an hour after the gig.

Oh, by the way. The t-shirt I got glows in the dark.

thursday with steven

When I was 13 I had a sister for 6 months
She arrived one February morning, pale and shell shocked
From past lives I could not imagine. She was 3 years older than me but in no time we became friends

We’d listen to her mix tapes; Dead Can Dance, Felt, This Mortal Coil
She introduced me to her favorite books, gave me clothes and my first cigarette
Sometimes we would head down to Blackbirds Moor to watch the barges on Grand Union in the twilight
She said, “The water has no memory”

For a few months everything about our lives was perfect
It was only us. We were inseparable
But gradually she passed into another distant part of my memory
Until I could no longer remember her face, her voice, even her name

We have got
We have got a perfect life
