August 29, 2014 | Interesting Links | Permalink

Cool story on COCTEAU TWINS and the founding of the label from the 4AD site. Will definitely check back to see more of their sleeve notes as they are published. It’s interesting to read about the evolution of the band from Treasure to Victorialand and on to the poppier Blue Bell Knoll and Heaven or […]

This summer, I’m trying to take it down a notch to reduce my stress and anxiety levels in concrete ways that I can sustain in every aspect of my life. This seems like the next logical step in my recovery process, but I’m also listening to my body. I have so many good things happening […]

Siouxon Creek is one of my favorite hikes in Oregon. The trail is easy to navigate and the terrain is very smooth and soft compared to other trails. It’s also nice to hear the rush of the creek through the entire hike! The forest is managed really well and there is a lot of moss […]
