Diamond Day
Vashti Bunyan Lyrics

Just another diamond day
Just a blade of grass
Just another bale of hay
And the horses pass

Just another field to plough
Just a grain of wheat
Just a sack of seed to sow
And the children eat

Just another life to live
Just a word to say
Just another love to give
And a diamond day

This album was released in 1970. It got little acclaim and barely any sales. Then in 2005 she released the album Lookaftering. Subsequently, she released Heartleap in 2014...

“In the early 1960s, she studied at The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art at Oxford University, but was expelled for failing to turn up to classes.

At age 18, she traveled to New York and discovered the music of Bob Dylan through his The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan album and decided to become a full-time musician. Returning to London, she was discovered by The Rolling Stones' manager Andrew Loog Oldham. In June 1965, under his direction, she released her first single, "Some Things Just Stick in Your Mind", penned by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

(Due to lack of commercial and critical success she was ) disappointed, (she) left the music industry and moved to The Incredible String Band's Glen Row cottages, then Ireland, and back to Scotland. Much of the ensuing 30 years were spent raising her three children. In this time, entirely unknown to her, the original album slowly became one of the most sought-after records of its time. It has sold online on Discogs for as much as $3,946.”

Well if that ain’t beautiful...

Hearing her songs make me want to have a very domestic life, with a farm and a garden, while singing these to my cows and cabbages.

Paper Your World

@V. I cant see a contradiction between the wish to have a "domestic" and calm life and fighting for feministic rights. Every fight needs rest to regain energy.



Anna L. Vajda

Yeah that's an ideal lifestyle.

Will Cullen

Be careful, it's well established that singing to cabbages causes triffids :-)

@Webtrauma Yep, I basically want an idyllic cottagecore life. Unfortunately due to money and other circumstances I doubt I’ll ever live like that.
Plus, I’m not sure there are many other gay guys into the whole cottagecore thing, so I’d probably be living alone. Maybe there’s some on the internet, but I’ve certainly never met anyone…
At least I have great artists like Vashti and Nick Drake in the meantime.
