Our generation has no Great War, no Great Depression. Our war is spiritual. Our depression is our lives

So funny, but also so true 


This is a timelapse video of the island where I grew up, and where I spent a month in solitude writing these songs. it was taken by a Norwegian photographer called Terje Søgierd. The archipelago is, at it’s closest point, 13 miles off the coast of the Sahara Desert. Every other day I drove up the mountain, walked around it’s foothills then drove back. Sometimes I’d drive up at night, park the car and spend a few hours just looking straight up. This is pretty much what I saw. If you ever go there, hire a car and point it at the mountain.
