Pink Floyd Forever

stacy elaine dacheux . june 2012

My fiance and I listened to Dark Side of the Moon last night before bed.

I first bought that album when I was 16.

It really is a magical album.

I can’t decide on whether it feels this way because it reminds me of breaking away from youth, or because of its overall artistry– a certain lull that moves from song to song with a quiet sense of alchemy.

Probably all of the above.

I am not a hippie witch. But still–

I’m pretty sure I’m not a grownup.

It felt great to read in bed and listen to the record on the player.

It took my record player several minutes to warm up, so there was a momentary worry that maybe it was broken. At first there was just a crackle. Then, the sound sort of slowly picked up pace, warped into regular motion, and it was so soothing: the world or wormhole just woke up.

I had an embarrassing thought– I wish I had recorded Dark Side of the Moon.

HA! I feel like everyone thinks this. I don’t even play an instrument.

But, I like the idea of just making something emotional with sound.

I’ve never really thought about that before.

I am going to research this more and share my discoveries tomorrow.
