Wide Awake, It’s Morning

words and visuals from my last may days in barcelona. 



the sun came up with no conclusions.

I tried to talk but the words got in the way

I’m not sure what Im trying to say,

maybe it’s something about this place



the other day I woke up in a dream

collected things I will not keep

wildflowers and borrowed books of poetry

teabag sunrise vanilla honey steeps

what language do you think in?

in what moments do you feel most alive?

can you live with no conclusions?

can you be you

and not you

all at the same time



and this is what I come back to

In the early morning light

words too many, lives too few

almost out of sight

I’m trying to remember

what it’s like to close my eyes

to be a part of a part of moving

all golden and alive


the sun came up with no conclusions


“I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning” is an album that has been a cornerstone to my source of inspiration, as has the music and words of Conor Oberst in all it’s many forms. The album goes through a wash of poetry and feeling and ends with the first line of the last track that has sunk into my life. the sun came up with no conclusions.

    The inspiration comes from not being myself is truly golden. I keep trying to find myself and by doing so, new inspiration often snick past me or I will disallow it to come into my mind. Being open to not being me is maybe the only way that people can grow.

      I mean, we can find inspiration in so many things. I think it is the starting point and the point of return. For me spirituality and creativity are often one and the same, making things brings me back to this point, and I try to create authentically; to make things that in the moment feel right.
      I’m glad you were inspired by the post and we can start more of these sorts of conversations.

    I’m extremely inspired with your writing skills and also with the structure on your blog. Is this a paid subject or did you customize it your self? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s uncommon to look a great blog like this one today.
