Fighting against a regime and working everyday with the most challenging population imaginable has me exhausted. I can barely write this post but I had to share this song with you.
I have decided to not use the term “self-care” anymore because for some reason to me that feels like work. Maybe it’s because I’m in a caring profession. Instead I call it having fun. Enjoying myself. Checking out. That is so important to do right now. A huge part of that for me is music, and I’ve been listening to this song on repeat for two days straight.
Skott, the artist who made this music, grew up in a remote forest commune run by outcast folk musicians. Her sound is pretty hard to pin down but I am obsessed with the full spectrum of what she releases. This song, Wolf, I’ve found particularly soothing. Like, deeply soothing in the hardest-to-reach places of my soul.
