    I've been taking selfies and almost gamifying my outfits on Instagram for a few years now, and this is a little enamel representation of those lewks. It's a lapel lapel pin. It's how you see yourself when you look in the mirror, hence the reverse-so image. Perfect for you next jazz casual.

about

Time is both constant and subjective. It’s an ever-eddying experience as we move through life. It can drag on and make us wearisome, and then things can move at an all too hurried pace. The phrase “The days are long, but the years are short” struck a chord with me, even if author Gretchen Rubin was originally referring to parenting when she first quipped it. We can see the years stretching forever on into the horizon, and we can look back on a decade and feel like it passed in the span of a traffic light. Time is a personal experience, unique to everyone. Sometimes it can even stop altogether. It’s those moments that we remember best.

Hope you enjoy these brief memories in time, warts and all. That’s what an album (particularly a jazz album) is to me. It’s a snapshot. Motion in amber. We’ll never sound like that again, and that ephemerality and connection to the moment is what I love the most about music. To quote artist Jean-Michel Basquait: “Art is how we decorate space, music is how we decorate time.”
