In the Aeroplane over the Sea (Neutral Milk Hotel)

brianne's flight was delayed in chicago and she didn't take off until 6am today. the traffic was horrific getting her at reagan national, but we somehow were only 15 minutes late to the funeral. after the service and the walk to the gravesite, we went to acropolis in greek town, laini's favorite restaurant. laini's next door neighbor and saint, joe, drove nancy to the airport which was such a relief as i have been in the car at least 6 hours in the last two days driving to and from baltimore. after the lunch was over, dorothea and emmanuel asked brianne and i back to the house where we talked about laini and i finally met kylie and noni. brianne and i made plans to go to paper moon again on saturday with the stamathises. it's just really comforting being with them and it seems like they feel the same way. love was sent to them from all of you who couldn't make it. they send their love. so much love. these past couple days have been really draining for all of us.

we all know how important music was to laini. the priest who performed the service knew her and really got her. the eulogy mentioned her love for her favorite band radiohead and how she had friends all over the world who loved her. as we walked to the gravesite the rain poured harder and harder. yesterday i remember her love for this song and how absolutely fitting this song is for all of us.

In the Aeroplane over the Sea (Neutral Milk Hotel)

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
And now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all
