All seasons are cyclical, like real life shit. We adapt and venture through each phase with intentions of engagement, embracing mistakes and chances that eventually become the foundation of identities and roles we take on in life. All pain is temporary, as in joy, anger, doubt and all human emotions. Nothing is forever. Just a constant cyclical randomization processed in patterns and algorithms. We can’t predict life, but we can try to brace ourselves for the ever changing tides of time.
Some dreams, are worth breaking your limbs for.
Dedicated to ALL the young gods out there.

While Everywhere at the end of time takes us on a long journey that lasts years of a person's life, Everywhere, an empty bliss feels more like an insight into a single day in the life of someone with dementia. We see good moments of recollection (even if the memories distorted or effort is needed) and bad moments (moments of confusion, bad recall or at times, pure chaos). I would highly recommend this as an "appetizer" if you're unsure about listening to Everywhere at the end of time. IvanDSM
