“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us even in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.”

Psychic Shuffle gets me.  Broken Bells before Broken Bells.

Just realized how close a bunch of shows are.  Seeing Conor Oberst Thursday and then in less than three weeks The Head and the Heart followed by, that same week, Broken Bells with Phantogram.  Livin’ the dream
