the aliens

you may not believe it but there are people who go through life with very little friction or distress
they dress well, eat well, sleep well
they are contented with their family life
they have moments of grief but all in all
they are undisturbed and often feel very good
and when they die
it is an easy death, usually in their sleep
you may not believe it but such people do exist

but i am not one of them
oh no, i am not one of them
i am not even near to being one of them
they are there
and i am here.

About The Author


“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
