    No hay banda

    No, let me latch onto this dream forever. I never want to wake up. Dream comes to life. Love returns and is recreated, happiness, laughter, tears, horror, bizarre figures and…midnight Silencio proceeding from thin air. Events have gone out of order, perception/identity is buried in a car crash and characters appear to be strangely artificial. What on earth is going on, expresso on napkin and tiny old people?

Depression hits home again. What makes a person human? What is…

    Hang me, oh hang me

    I'll be dead and gone

    Hang me, oh hang me

    I'll be dead and gone

    Wouldn't mind the hanging

    But the layin' in a grave so long, poor boy

    I been all around this world

    It felt so freezing cold and anyone without adequate shelter or warmth would possibly not make it through. A folk singer with his old Gibson guitar gently weeping a few verses of “Hang me, Oh Hang Me”He gazes at…
