They look like dancing firebenders or waterbenders… i love it.

Or like Pocahontas..

Speed Trials by Elliott Smith off Either/Or (1997)

In Retrospect 

Last year changed its seasons 
subtly, stripped its sultry winds
for the reds of dying leaves, let
gelid drips of winter ice melt onto a
warming earth and urged the dormant
bulbs to brave the
pain of spring.

We, loving, above the whim of
time, did not notice.

Alone. I remember now.

 Maya Angelou.

Bright Eyes - Oh, You Are The Roots That Sleep Beneath My Feet

I sing and drink and sleep on floors
And try hard not to be annoyed
By all these people worrying about me
So when I’m suffering through some awful drive
You occasionally cross my mind
It’s my hidden hope that you are still among them
Well, are you?

Tha Mo Ghaol Air Àird A’ Chuain
Julie Fowlis

I heard this song in the trailer of Pixar’s upcoming movie Brave. So I searched around the net and found the title and meaning.

This song is a Scottish Gaelic (Gàidhlig) song. The song is beautiful. And if you read the meaning, it’ll be much more.

Below I’ll post the translation. And of course, the link to the original lyrics.


My Love Is On the High Seas

On a quiet evening at the beginning of May
When the bat was in the skies
I heard a tearful young maiden
Singing beneath the shadow of the green branches
The sun was setting in the sea
And no stars yet graced the sky
When the young girl sang sorrowfully
"My love is on the high seas"

The night's dew began to fall
Each bloom yielding softly to the droplets
The wind blew in a fragrant breeze
Bringing life and renewal to each field
The girl tunefully sang her song
Quiet and peaceful like the June dew
And this chorus constantly repeated
"My love is on the high seas"

Day darkened and the stars shone
Setting their course amongst the clouds
The maiden sat, burdened by her sadness
Her singing could not have been more soothing
I moved closer to the young woman
Singing of her love sailing on the sea
Oh sweet was her sad lament
"My love is on the high seas"

The music enticed me
Nearer to the brown-haired maiden of the warm eyes
And she prayed to the King of Heaven
"Protect my love on the high seas"
Her heart was breaking with love
When I took her by the hand
"Wipe your eyes, your love is safe
I have returned to you from the high seas."


Original Lyrics

YES FINALLY! Found this song <3 

I’ve been searching all over youtube for it… but lack of understanding anything in gaelic prevented me from success v_v 

Before my drive was wiped, I had all of JF’s albums. Reminds me that I have to start downloading again.
