Have you ever been so happy that it made you sad?
Okay so, random. I’m in love with sadness. Like, I’m immensely intrigued by it…
I try to understand what makes people sad. Why they do certain things when they’re sad. I try to figure out the stories behind brilliant songs that are created from a sad place and time. There’s something so raw and beautiful about sadness. When you’re sad, you’re open to being vulnerable. I can connect to that. Deeply.
“I have found that the saddest people are also the funniest, and only those who understand complexity can communicate simplicity.”
A while back I was on a blog and Harmonie Du Soir by Haruka Nakamura was playing softly in the background. I turned my speakers up and replayed the song over and over and over again until I was literally consumed by the sounds. I felt everything and nothing at the same time. It’s weird. Like, being really happy because everything is seemingly going your way, but sad because…what if it ends?
