MM#24 – Music Speaks When We Are Scared

“My brother is having his first baby (due in the next couple of days). He has been really quiet throughout the pregnancy.

He has never been good with words and has difficulty with changes.

One week ago, he sent me this video and explained the metaphor of the song.  He said that having a baby is like a meteor coming to earth, destroying everything familiar. He went on to say that the singer embraced this change by jumping into the abyss of uncertainty.

It was a relief to finally hear my brother talking about his baby for the first time, and another reason to give thanks to music for being a catalyst to bring out, what we haven’t been able to express with words.”
