Julianna Barwick – Nepenthe

My association when I hear or read the word Nepenthe is the Nepenthe Restaurant in Big Sur, California. Rosemary and I spent a picturesque afternoon there on our drive down the California coast in the 1980s. We had an exquisite meal on the verandah, peacefully overlooking the serenity of the mountain scenery.


As I listen to Julianna Barwick‘s new album, Nepenthe on NPR’s First Listen, I become reconnected with that fresh mountain air, the cloudy blue sky above my senses.  I am one with the natural splendor and my troubles slip effortlessly away.

I know nepenthe is supposed to make you forget but thankfully Nepenthe helps to remember and harkens us to return to Big Sur someday very soon 🙂

  1. I agree upon your association 🙂 the music and the picture are so well-connected…The wind stirs now after raining from the windows and music is playing all the way…

    What a nice evening in Germany 🙂
