1. Made for Love Sounds.

  4. Once you realize (especially as a woman) that you can be critical, strong, angry, honest, rigorous, kind, and loving all at the same time, you’re free.

     

  5. And now so many years have passed
    I used to be the girl
    Was only daydreaming of only one man


     

  6. "When we face pain in relationships our first response is often to sever bonds rather than to maintain commitment."

    ― bell hooks, All About Love: New Visions

     

  7. When you lose love you also lose and gain a sound.

    Salome Voegelin, “The Pathetic Trigger of Sound Draws Us Into a Sonic Fiction”:


    “It is sound itself, as pathetic trigger, that entices us to inhabit this world in listening, and grants us access to what the world might be and how we might live in it as in an affective geography.”

     

  8. When all your line breaks are erased as if form means nothing.

    As if only poetry can be concerned with how words hit and land and sound on the page.

     

  9. When you respect someone so much, and trust their judgement so completely, you’re willing to change your mind (life) because of them.

     

  10. "Eventually the act of listening became more important than the sound itself…Sound—more precisely listening—thus becomes a mental activity, emphasizing the intangible aspect of the subject."

    -Kevin Muhlen on the sound exhibition Hlysnan: The Notion and Politics of Listening
