But often, in the din of strife,
There rises an unspeakable desire
After the knowledge of our buried life.”

The Buried Life is, at its core, a celebration of the simple act of storytelling. It weaves a poem of the same name by Matthew Arnold, music by the likes of Tori Amos, Regina Spektor, Patti Smith, etc, and first person storytelling. It’s a secret party in the woods with drinks aplenty, about the joy//complexity//adversity//
