I love music, especially that of Englishmen. This is a random post after not posting for 3 weeks but lyrics, like poetry, strives to capture a moment, an emotion. It’s a space where “Time forever frozen still.” Ed Sheeran’s Photgraph weaves together strands of love and loss. It compels you to experience your own feelings through the emotions of the artist. I used to hate calling musicians “artists” because c’mon Da Vinci was an artist. But to call someone an “artiste” means
, especially an actor, singer, dancer, or other public performer.
an entertainer, such as a singer or dancer
a person who is highly skilled in some occupation: a hair artiste
But we’re not french, so “artist” is logical but some how unfitting.
Paul McCartney’s Blackbird
paints a beautiful picture of a terrible confinement. It embodies hope in darkness. His simple yet descriptive lyrics at their best. I love this song so much that I can barely describe it. I’ve written about 75% of a story that ends with this beautiful scene.
So what are your favorite songs? Has any song inspired you?
My beloved Spock was/will be the most logical creature in the known universe. His words of wisdom were/will be “to coin a phrase, ‘fascinating.'”
“Change is the essential process of all existence”
Here’s what my most logical being has said on Trump:
“Without followers, evil cannot spread.”
“In critical moments, men sometimes see exactly what they wish to see.”
I didn’t realize Spock found politics interesting.
A poem that his alter ego Lenard Nimroy wrote:
I am convinced that if all of mankind could only gather together In one circle Arms on each other’s shoulders And dance, laugh and cry together Then much of the tension and burden Of life Would fall away In the knowledge that We are all children Needing and wanting Each other’s Comfort and Understanding We are all children Searching for love
