“I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.” -Elizabeth Taylor

You know how important music is to me, and for many of you it holds a similarly prominent place in your lives and in your hearts. A big part of that experience, going back to our youths, is that of the album cover and liner notes, something that’s often lost here in the digital age of music. Have a listen to one of Nick Drake’s unique songs,

Things Behind The Sun,

while I share with you one of the most amazing art projects I’ve ever seen.
