silence silence silence…

life’s greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.

[victor hugo, 1802]

i’d risen this morning determined to break
the spell of my longing and not to think

i freed myself from my family
i freed myself from work
freed myself
i freed myself
and remained alone

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    i couldn’t get this song out of my head one evening. all i wanted to do was put it on repeat and let pj’s voice slide through my veins. these moods i try to channel into some kind of art.. was what resulted that night.
