James Blake • A Case Of You

12:21 am. The most wretched month of the year. In a week of everlasting frigidity. Blue is not simply a color. It’s a thought. An existing subterraneous sentiment.  A toilsome knot. Too burdening to alleviate. But when the purest voice meets the bravest song. It’s James Mitchell or Joni Blake. It’s astonishing. I turn the volume up high. So that Blue metamorphoses into ocean. Or sky. Hardship subsides. Suddenly. I’m on the mend.
