Why do we like this?

I'm curating a playlist featuring my 'song of the week' for each week of the year, aiming for a 52-track compilation by year-end. However, the past two weeks have posed a challenge in finding songs that deeply resonate with me. Today, that changed with the addition of Big in Borneo's "How it Feels."

This song made me feel something. It samples kids in Belfast, back in 1967, talking about their feelings, and in so doing, my heart twirled around the innocence of child-like emotions, expression, and wonder. My eyes began to fill like delicate puddles beneath soft rain.

I'm so grateful for this track, especially considering the artist's journey in creating it. Suffering from anxiety, all creativity was blocked until the medication, Sertraline (the name of the EP), assisted them back to creative outpourings. Speaking to this, the artist explains: "This EP is named for the drug that helped me come out the other side."

We are all together as we orbit the sun, yet we are also alone as we orbit around our own realities — sometimes we collide, sometimes we miss. Today, Big in Borneo's "How it Feels" glided gracefully into my atmosphere, and I have a feeling that tonight's sunset will be all the brighter because of it.
