I can't think of any particularly interesting stories to tell, and I don't have any pithy life advice, so instead I'll give you some music. I'm sticking to just five pieces, because I'm afraid that if I list more you’ll all just see a long list and ignore it...

Some of these are classical choral pieces and some are modern songs. All of them are among the most beautiful things I've ever heard, and they all make me feel things that seem meaningful and important and worth feeling. Maybe they'll do the same for you.

Ave verum corpus — William Byrd
Viðrar vel til loftárása — Sigur Rós
Angeles — Elliott Smith
Os justi — Anton Bruckner
Sanvean — Dead Can Dance

Happy listening!
