This Shining Shining World

"Consider the lillies of the field"
Consider the carnage and massacre
Consider the love and embraces
Consider the hangingred skies
Consider the pain of your enemy
Consider the hatred of your friend
There, oh there, there is the land
All the musics shall combine
All the daughters are no longer brought low
They are araised
In brightfiregodgiven they rejoice
And those who deny this world
Is the soul of the unbroken one
This is indeed Paradise
(Come I shall show you where
The stars give birth and sleep)
And all around you is the warm bluegreen breath of heavens
Do not fear
Around you is the vast blueblack space of stars
Do not fear
This is the great ocean
On which the endless waves crash down
God is not dead
There is no death I say
(Come I shall show you where
Dreams go to when they die)
Hurry now: the sun is descending
The shadows wait to play

Current 93 has a new spoken word album as well as a book. the album, Hypnagogue is one of the most powerful pieces of music/word i've ever come across. sometimes i wish my heart burned as bright as david's every day.
today was the summer solstice, which marks in personal cyclical time the start of creative overdrive season way down deep in the cracks where nothing can reach me. i have a few projects in the works that will hopefully coming to fruition in the coming weeks.

I have cast fire upon the world, and see, I am guarding it until it blazes.
~The (condemned) Gospel of St. Thomas

Hurrah for the brain igloo.
