Tunes: Alela Diane
Alela Diane's album To Be Still has been on heavy rotation this week in our house. With a heavier work load than I have become accustomed to, the sleepy folk mood of this album is a perfect match to my new schedule. The tracks have a gentle quality that lends wonderfully to a restorative yoga practice, crocheting in your rocking chair, or taking the first of many Spring sun soaked naps (all of which I have done this week).
"Thinking I'd like to look at your teeth
Lined up in perfect rows
A maze of children feeding orchard trees
Where the flat lands stretch inside your mouth
And when you laugh all the star thistles stumble out
The flat lands stretch inside your mouth
And when you laugh all the star-thistles stumble out"
- Dry Grass and Shadows by Alela Diane
