I know what you mean. So much good that gets trampled down, it's sad. With the way things are going in the world there are many times I want to hide in the basement and give up on everything. Writing is my refuge - create something hopeful, or tragic to vent your fears.What a song, indianroads.. I've been reading some of the work work of Alain Robbe-Grillet and Nathalie Sarraute so before clicking into "Vincent" I was already a little bit intellectually fragile, wobbly, dizzy, almost panicky even. I listened to the song and tears formed. I wish I could say I understand, but it's those times when it feels as if I get the closest to understanding, that's when I get the shakiest. Or perhaps understanding anything is merely illusion and perhaps I never will understand anything. I envy you and your wife your trip to the Van Gogh exhibit. Be sure to take notes and make observations for us. (I've always loved that Don MacLean song.) So much to understand, so little time.
