We’ve got the sky to talk about and the world to lie upon.
Have you every fully connected to a piece of art? This song hit me hard recently. The lyrics cut down deep and nearly brought me to tears. Townes Van Zandt is one of those artists who to me is a prophet. He brought down truth and life through his flawed body. The song spoke to my situation at present. Should we sacrifice safety and security for full living? Should we risk the inevitable highs and the certain lows that will come from a trip around the world?
The choice is yours to make,
Time is yours to take;
Some dive into the sea,
Some toil upon the stone.
To live is to fly
Both low and high,
So shake the dust off of your wings
And the sleep out of your eyes.
