LETTING THE DAYS GO BY

“And you may ask yourself, what is that beautiful house?

And you may ask yourself, where does that highway go to?

And you may ask yourself, am I right? Am I wrong?

And you may say yourself, “My God! What have I done?”

Man’s ontological uncertainty is clear and present, a palpable longing and a fearing knowing. Why are we here, what should we do, what have we done?

Talking Heads drilled into this essence in music and lyric perhaps better than has ever been done before or since and now, nearly 40 years later, the artifice is cracked, the facade has fallen, no one can deny, and the entirety of the past shall no longer serve us.

Maddening, yes, but also exhilirating.

DOWN BY THE WATER

“Oh help me, Jesus, come through this storm.”

The searing, deliberate talent of PJ Harvey reminds us that we collect and possess many thoughts, some clinging to us, unchosen, unwanted.

We do not have to feed them.

WITH A CROSS HELD HIGH IN HAND

Imagine creating one lasting masterpiece, each time it’s looked upon, listened to, humans are moved. What a glorious blessing.

Genesis achieved this more than once.

“Lord of Lords, King of Kings, has returned to lead his children home, to take them to the new Jerusalem.”

THE LIVING PRESENT

“There is something changing in the climate of consciousness on this planet today.”

Everywhere you look, turn, tell, touch, hear, you know. In bits and gushes, a higher calling beckons.

Public Enemy saw this coming.
