I’m editing a story I started years ago that features the ghost Mark Linkous. I found this nice thing he said from an interview I’d never read before:
If I can’t have a gold day, the least I can do is create something that’s going to—even if it puts a miniscule fraction of beauty in the world, that’s all I want to do.
Here’s the song Gold Day, one that always makes me peaceful and happy. Thank you, Mark, wherever you are now.
