In Country Sleep

Never and never, my girl riding far and near
In the land of the hearthstone tales, and spelled asleep,
Fear or believe that the wolf in a sheepwhite hood
Loping and bleating roughly and blithely shall leap,
My dear, my dear,
Out of a lair in the flocked leaves in the dew dipped year
To eat your heart in the house in the rosy wood.

Sleep, good, for ever, slow and deep, spelled rare and wise,
My girl ranging the night in the rose and shire
Of the hobnail tales: no gooseherd or swine will turn
Into a homestall king or hamlet of fire
And prince of ice
To court the honeyed heart from your side before sunrise
In a spinney of ringed boys and ganders, spike and burn,

Creepy Power

Sean Turley is a dear friend of ours, one that provides hours of passionate argumentation, an endless flow of East Coast madness, and our favorite book of rainy day Polaroids. He’s our personal gatekeeper to America’s great end of the line, and has provided us with a place to sleep every time we feel the need to look out onto a lobster bay and drive on the Atlantic’s edge while listening to the past’s Next Big Thing. He’s a teacher, an eater, an asshole, a man with one of this land’s great Old Ladies, and his pictures make us want to get our heads back to “the way life should be.” Enjoy Sean’s photos here and then check out their soundtracks here.

Well, for all he’s become in the last couple of decades, at least Paul still spends some time in the heart of the country.

Sounds like our kind of road trip.

Shall We Gather At The River?

Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Yes, we’ll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.
