This week’s pick is ‘Gardener’ by Rebecca Riots.
I’d go to this song for a feeling of intimacy, simplicity, and feeling nostalgic about the present moment as if it were already in the past.
You feel the beauty and pain of the life you life and the life you wish you lived. In acoustic songs like these, these two worlds meet for a moment. You don’t come out crushed – you come out aware that the gap between the two is what kept you a dreamer all these years.
As the lyrics say: ‘I am a garden / but also the gardener’. So tend to your gardens – your unfulfilled desires might sprout where you least expect them to.
With digital fairy greetings,
