The Good Face

Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle
Everything I do is stitched with its color

The Dream of the Ridiculous Man

All are tending to one and the same goal, at least all aspire to the same goal, from the wise man to the lowest murderer, but only by different ways. It is an old truth, but there is this new in it: I cannot go far astray. I saw the truth. I saw and know that men could be beautiful and happy, without losing the capacity to live upon the earth. I will not, I cannot believe that evil is the normal condition of men. I saw the truth, I did not invent it with my mind. I saw, saw, and her living image filled my soul for ever. I saw her in such consummate perfection that I cannot possibly believe that she was not among men. How can I then go astray? The living image of what I saw will be with me always, and will correct and guide me always. Oh, I am strong and fresh, I can go on, go on, even for a thousand years.
-Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Broken Things

Why is light given to those in misery, and life to the bitter of soul? To those who long for death that does not come, who search for it more than for hidden treasure, who are filled with gladness and rejoice when they reach the grave? Why is life given to a man whose way is hidden, whom God has hedged in? For sighing has become my daily food; my groans pour out like water. What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. I have no peace, no quietness; I have no rest, but only turmoil.

-Job 3:20-26

Human Conditions

As 2020 winds down, I have been reflecting on not only the madness of this past year but also of the past four. A song on this one, "The History Train," tries to address some of the feelings I have. What about you? What do you think?

Our Boy

In my experience, it's exceedingly rare that someone offers to take you by the hand and help walk you out of your own personal wilderness. This album is about that journey and that person.

Goodnight and Pleasant Dreams

A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened. -Albert Camus
