Disable your Instagram notifications, log out of Facebook, and put away the phone. Nod and smile politely as much as you have to, shake hands, be nice, be a robot, and hold out until you find a quiet moment in the storm.
Then enjoy floating in the amniotic embrace of loss, despondency, and aching memories.
This umbilical will be cut at some point, and then you will have to face the world. But not today. Today you can drift.
The Soundtrack Of The Disconnect is a collection of songs for recollection, perfect for days and nights when you are plugged into the sound and disconnected from the world. The haunting melodies and words are waiting to usher you into the calm, nostalgic space between.
