my submission to the bitsy mixtape jam

it's also an ode to Ali Smith, one of my favorite writers who is currently writing  seasonal 'state of the nation' works. 'Autumn'  and 'Winter' are already out, 'Spring' is coming in 2019. 

      quotes i used:

"forgetting is important. we do it on purpose. it means we get a bit of rest. we have to forget, or else we'd never sleep again." -Autumn                                                   

"that's what winter is: an exercise in remembering to still yourself, then how to pliantly come back to live again." -Winter                                                                                       

"that's the thing about things. they fall apart, always have, always will. it's in their nature" - Autumn                                                                                                                                                   

 "there was once, and there was only once; once was all there was" There But For The

      music i used:

"March" , "For Better or Worse", "Walking Barefoot on Grass" and  "June"  all by Kai Engel.

also i used the Bitsymuse hack from Borksy. Yall are really smart it took me ages to figure out how it worked (thanks onion for helping me :3)
