(SWIPE LEFT) .
I know I’m not the only artist looking for the words to say in a time like this.
Filling up journal pages and computer hard drives with idea after idea.
Hoping to sleep deeper every night, that I might have a dream, with an answer. Not “thee” answer, but maybe a contribution.
She said “Lean toward the light”. Oprah is okay with that silence, I think. That personal space that comes after you’ve said your peace. The worlds reaction is enough of a space filler on its own. Your light doesn’t dim because of the words they say.
I’m an artist. There is despair. I crave the creativity to explain the state of the world. That’s just my nature. I fumble, but if only I could sing that song finally that says, “there’s hope”, and someone believed it enough. Enough to start each day with gratitude and walking their dogs... You know, like Oprah.
I put it in my music. I even tried singing another mans song. And I know, I’m not the only person looking for the words to say at a time like this, where darkness seems to have such a loud voice... I have to hold on to the words “Lean towards the light”. ✨
There is hope. Don’t be hopeless. You are not alone. Lean Sis. There is light. And if you only see an inkling. Lean Sis.
I think Oprah knows. I’ll lean.
