Obolus by Thrones

This week’s song of the week was submitted by MIA Personal Stories Editor Emmeline Mead: “In Greek mythology, an Obolus was a coin used as payment for the ferryman who conveyed souls across the river dividing the living from the dead. Shared in honor of all the people who did not survive psychiatry.”

-Emmeline Mead
