I realize this post won’t mean to you what it does to me
I’m writing this for myself, I guess

’Snowflakes Are Dancing’ was a 1974 album
By Isao Tomita
Consisting entirely of Claude Debussy’s “tone paintings”
Performed on a Moog synthesizer

As a child my parents and I would turn out the lights at night
Play Tomita and hide under a blanket
While we’d kick our feet to create sparks

I remember thinking it was as if
We were flying through space
The stars shooting by at warp speed

This is my favorite song from the album

I miss it terribly
