old man recording thoughts

When young, we mourn for one woman… as we grow old, for women in general. The tragedy of life is that man is never free yet strives for what he can never be. The thing most feared in secret always happens. My life, my loves, where are they now? But the more the pain grows, the more this instinct for life somehow asserts itself. The necessary beauty in life is in giving yourself to it completely. Only later will it clarify itself and become coherent.

- Old Man Recording Thoughts

When a 22 (now 23) year old man signs his first solo record contract, his first thought is not “I’m going to make an incredible album,” or “I’m so excited to put out my own music and tour the world,” or “I’m going to eat, sleep, and breathe this music so my fans will be proud.” No, his first thought is…

“I want to have a baby with my girlfriend who I’ve been with less than a year and who isn’t even divorced from her husband yet.”

Makes perfect sense. :) :) :)
