As I've said before, 'I'm In' was/is what my heart needed, particularly in the moments, hours, and days after its release. I will always love that song, despite the fact that it will always remind me of a time of great worldwide sorrow and difficulty. There is still more to say about it, one of these days...one of these days.
In the meantime, now that we're in a kind of waiting and hoping mode for more songs, I can't help but think about what is coming next, and if it will evoke another truly personal response in me. I try not to hope for that, because I don't want to set myself up for disappointment, and because it's super unrealistic. Artists do what they do, and it's our job to simply receive the art and make of it what we will.
But if I were to hope, if I allowed myself to wish for a song from him to make me feel a certain kind of way...I would want a song that brings me springtime, a light at the end of the tunnel, the promise of new beginnings.( Collapse )
