VIDEO: ‘Holes’ (live)

On the last night of my EP recording session at about 5am, I spontaneously decided to record a song I had written called ‘Holes’. We set up a camera on the edge of the piano, and this is the video of the actual live, one-take recording that made it onto the ‘Black Mud EP’, available now on iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/black-mud-ep/id859054229

Beautiful.

When you can let go of the idols of relationships, wealth, intellect, success, beauty, and career: you can actually enjoy them for what they are. You don’t expect salvation or redemption from them. You don’t crush them with expectations or demand them to serve your every whim. You instead see them as gifts, as privileges, as an honor to respect and to cherish. Treat the earthly as divine and you will lose both; treat the divine as your treasure and the earth will be just as beautiful. - J.S. (via jspark3000)

I’ve come to believe Jesus’ solidarity with suffering on the cross is actually an acceptance of a certain meaninglessness in the universe, its nonsensical tragic nature, and a black hole that seems constantly to show itself to sensitive souls. - Richard Rohr

Fascinating documentary about programmer and information activist Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide at 26.
