Flimsy is about reminiscing the past. Music is like wine; the repository of hopes, dreams, struggles and levity, all the humanity that conspires to harness the soil, the weather, and the unruly grape into something delicious.

Wallace Stegner: There is a sense in which we are all each other’s consequences…
If you’re going to try, go all the way, otherwise don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, wives, relatives and maybe eve your min. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery and isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to the perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.
Fernando Pessoa: The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd – The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.
