It is always instructive to lose one’s mother in the first sunshine of haymaking; and when one’s father goes away after one’s eldest brother’s disappearance, then that too is a special kind of experience, a new type of misery, quite the same as in revelry, where people are said to draw enormous distinction between song and dance.

In @headspace ‘s Sleepcast “Cat Marina,” a smooth-voiced narrator describes the sights and sounds as you visit an out-of-the-way marina full of houseboats and the cats that live thereupon. If you can’t see the value in that, then maybe you need to think long and hard about what made you decide to spend your life running from joy. #itsamarinawithcats #catmarina #fadedAF #sleepcast
