Lord, I do fear
Thou’st made the world too beautiful this year;
Je me sens coupable parce que j’ai l’habitude
C’est la seule chose que je peux faire avec une certaine certitude
-Lhasa de Sela
In the coming years, we will need to hold onto a complex hope that never forgets the damage being done, and keeps sight of the huge number of people stepping up to fix it.
Recently I had the privilege of collaborating on a publication called Burn Zone with Danny Lyon, the photographer.
What comfort do we seek, what sacrifices can we make, and what do we sacrifice for?
I can decide what I give
But it’s not up to me what I get given
Unthinkable surprises about to happen
But what they are…
It’s not up to you
Well it never really was
Lying in a bathtub, holding to the sides
Frozen in the steam and everything to hide
Deep in the bathtub, make it good and hot
Make it hot enough to wash everything off
