The beautiful tunes and bushy beard of Bon Iver provided inspiration on this rainy Wednesday.

Day #17

The musical vibrations of Phantogram invigorate my facial hair follicles at Union Transfer.

Day #20

Camus says, Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. My beard and I lounge comfortably in a pile of autumn flowers.
