on thursday, robert & i went to bon iver in red rocks.
their latest album is very dear to us—we listened to it over & over again during our move from seattle to denver; we saw that music in western washington's wet forests, in the columbia river, in idaho's split freeways & foothills, in utah's cracked earth, in the rocky mountains & their shaky thunderstorms.

her pick: justin vernon belted the last line of my favorite song, re: stacks, "all your love will be safe with me"—and i swear it echoed off the moon.
his pick: justin playing re:stacks solo was so intimate.

  1. Your description of hearing the music in the earth as you moved is so, so beautiful. It's visceral, your description. I'll forever be in awe of your way with words, my sweet friend!
    And I love, love, love Bon Iver. Both of his records have gotten more play on our record player in the past six months than anything else.

  5. What a special moment for you and your hubby. Bon Iver is pretty amazing and I'm pretty sure his music is made for long road trips. Beautiful.

  13. We stopped by Red Rocks last year when we were in Denver and are hoping to return someday for a concert. Looks freaking amazing... especially in the summertime. P.S. Nice 'stache!
