(For the past four years, I’ve used Reverb10 prompts to give myself a question to answer every day of December. It’s a great way to reflect on the year and set goals for the future. I’ve kept my favorite prompts, added a few from other sources like Project Reverb and created my own month-and-a-bit of questions.)
Music. What’s your favorite song from 2014?
Speaking of this fictional mix tape I’m making up in my head, I have another song to add. (Oh, we weren’t talking about that. Sorry. I got distracted by music. Happens.) I love Cat Power’s new album, and Ruin reminds me of LA. The Lyrics go like this:
I’ve seen gypsies who made it all the way
And kept going, kept rolling with nowhere to go
Nowhere to go.
As far as I’ve seen, from the bush
In the wilderness, to every known city
I’ve been to Saudi Arabia, dug up Calcutta
So I went to Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome
Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain
Belfast, to the desert, Spain
Some little bitty island in the middle of the Ṗacific
All the way back home, to my town
To my town
(Last year I wrote this.)
