how do i find peace in middle of this chaos? i don’t.
nothing will put me at peace as long some people want me dead because i’m gay, others because i’m jewish, others because i’m liberal.
nothing will put me at peace as long people are getting killed because of the color of their skin, as long as extreme right politicians are thriving again in the US and in Europe.
i think we live in dangerous times where being at peace is a luxury we cannot afford.
great singers who use their voices to let us feel what the words mean and what suffering, joy, amazement or desperation a composer has put in his work are a much needed resistance against the superficiality that will soon kill what is left of our culture.
how can anyone find peace while the ship is sinking?
i am not at peace: i am angry. but i will fight. the only consolation is to know that there are people around that can join the fight.
all of this can seem very dark, but it is not. as leonard cohen puts it: there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.
