i feel like a child/devendra banhart
I keep hearing this song whenever I am near a radio and it is the kind of song I admire on a variety of levels:
1. Mr. Banhart is quite an eccentric in the best way possible. I feel very affectionate towards him and his music and method of expression.
2. The lyrics sound like a child wrote them because of their simplicity and sweetness.
I can't think of anymore 'levels' so I'll give you this link to one of the portrait photographers whose work I admire immeasurably and who is also very passionate and politically opinionated and who did something so human and, just, so real to express his feelings and other fellow human beings feelings about the New Orleans situation. Read his words. Watch the images by clicking through them or click on 'view as slideshow'.
I wish I could think in those terms and be that way, doing things that are so simple and yet so meaningful and... just... real.
I'm feeling a bit Meryl-Streep-in-The-Hours right now. My life is soooo trivial. Yet it is up to me to make it less so.
