Monday’s Music Box; Soundtrack for Surfing: Sufjan Stevens, “Michigan”

Many thanks to Rebecca Moon Ruark, aka Rust Belt Girl for pointing me to this gentleman’s amazing music.

A complex and intriguing album.

Well worth a fully engaged listen, with headphones, preferably.

Serious power here, both musically and lyrically.

Ms. Rebecca Moon Ruark over at Rust Belt Girl has been kind enough to share “Watching Time”, a little “phoetic essay” that I put together about my home town on the Old Mississippi.

I strongly encourage you to go check out her blog, especially her amazing story, ‘Recruit’, the print and audio versions of which are featured on Flock Literary Journal. Well worth the read AND the listen. A really touching and edgy story, well-presented by herself.

Many thanks, Rebecca!
