On yet another business trip to China, perhaps the 9th one this year, and realizing I had only downloaded a small handful of songs onto my iPhone, I’m siting in the backseat of a van with a seatbelt that wont fasten. I’m staring out the window and watching the scenery:
Majestic mountains in the distance, fading away into the fog or perhaps pollution
Families riding beat up scooters without helmets and wearing flip flops
Cement houses with silver metal doors, their windows wide open
And for some reason, this song from The Tallest Man On Earth suits the mood perfectly, so I play it on repeat.
