Let me start right off the top by saying that this mixtape is special and that it technically is for the month of May. It’s my favorite hour and 11 minutes of music at the moment because it captures how special it was to travel to four cities I’ve never been to before in my life; Paris, Geneva, Chamonix Mont Blanc, and Florence. I saw my mija get married, at the top of a mountain in front of a dying glacier in the middle of the rain. It was overwhelming and I felt so lucky to witness that moment and every moment that came before it and after.
Even now at home, I’m gripping to the calm that came from being away for two weeks and keeping the perspective changing aspects of travel close to me daily.
