I made a mix to celebrate and suffer the unknown. These songs are about being free, being terrified, and being (ultimately) OK.
Yesterday I got to go on a tour of Highclere Castle, the set for Downton Abbey. It was surreal. You weren’t supposed to take photographs inside of the castle, but loads of people surreptitiously ignored that rule (including myself).
My favorite part of the tour was wandering through the gardens. It is unbelievable to think that someone actually lives here. That this wide expanse of earth and field and tree belongs to someone, and is where they were told as a child to go out and play.
I feel so grateful to my AirBnB host for inviting me along. I never even knew that this was a thing you could do. If you’re ever in Wiltshire, and you love DA, I definitely recommend making a trip. The garden tour is only £5, and is well worth the trip.
