8x8 Resin coated with gold leaf
There is nothing on Earth that makes me feel like it’s 1990s Illinois like the Gin Blossoms. Music is a thick gold filter that for me is always applied to the picture, represented in the abstract of this message. We can always light up our memory - seriously try it. Think of a really bad day you had - and imagine it in your mind - now photoshop it so it appears brighter.
I had a lot of dark years in that part of the country but when I hear the Gin Blossoms - it’s winter and I’m 8- staring up at the giant high school that was across the street from my house and imagining it would all be wonderful once I got there.
