Don’t Give Up

On Peter Gabriel’s amazing album So, Don’t Give Up is probably my favorite song.  Besides being a political statement,  as so many of his songs are, it features Kate Bush and her amazing vocal range.  I had this album on CD in college when it first came out and I still listen to it frequently.  It has never lost its shine.

Don’t give up
’cause you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not beaten yet
Don’t give up
I know you can make it good

I could include all of the lyrics, they are so good.  And today, they are speaking to me personally.  How is it that once in a while, you hit your playlist that is randomized and the right song comes on?  I feel like I am on the edge of change, that the other shoe is about to drop.  I am mentally girding myself for battle, knowing that when that shoe does drop I will have a battle on the other side.  For me, that battle may include overwhelming pain, depression, anxiety, anger, loneliness.  But I have friends.  I am not beaten yet.  I can make it good.  I won’t give up.

And one of the things that I know helps get me beyond my personal demons would be art.  And so today’s art is from tanglepatterns.com, String 037 – http://tanglepatterns.com/2013/01/tanglepatterns-string-037.html
