I've decided the next fiction book I'm going to read is Mrs. Dalloway. And in honor of Viginia Woolf, I present you with this magnificent quote from To the Lighthouse:

"The great revalation had never come. The great revalations perhaps never did come. Instead there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark."

Songs I love

Two years ago during my first time being an expat in England my darling friend Sharif played Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights for me. I was like wtf is this, is this real? I then later on told my friend Dave, a fan of pretty obscure music and he had me listen to Kate's songs Cloudbusting and Hounds of Love (sorry if I'm getting this story wrong... I credit both Sharif and Dave with introducing me to Kate). My life changed. Hearing Kate Bush was like a gigantic musical hole being filled in my life. She's amazing and honestly in my mind the greatest female artist probably ever. Her songs are creative, well written with depth and her voice is amazing. Also she wrote a song about Joyce's Ulysses (The Sensual World). Here are my two fav Kate Bush songs (both, with amazing music videos), I hope you love them as much as I do:
