Vivian Li's Music Recommendation:
An album I revisit often is Ryo Fukui's Scenery 1976 —his jazz pieces include bright tunes full of drizzling cream melt, mountain drumming, and spring rain. I’m drawn to the insistent rhythm in these harmonies, especially as they tap on my glass ceiling, spinning alongside totems of Inception. I can never quite pinpoint the square they’ll leap on next, and I adore revisiting these tunes in morning writing sprints, London Fog breaks, or before uncovering my East window’s glistening qualities—a golden welcome to possibility, surprise, and change.
