Hello friends! The blog is on indefinite hiatus. Thanks for the love and support!
The past two months of my life have been a whirlwind of emotions, highest highs and lowest lows, anger, utter sadness, acceptance, love, friends, and the need to find what is bright and good in this world. UK based poet/musician Benjamin Clementine's music is rare in it's honesty, devastating in its melancholic tone, and overflowing with gorgeous heart-wrenching vocals and painstakingly beautiful piano.
Clementine's video accompanies the song so incredibly well. It is filled with imagery of blind folds, breaking through paper-thin walls, self-reflection, and shadows. We are able to see that although it is exceptionally difficult to break the cycle of grief/doubt/confusion, as he sings, "Somewhere there is hope, there's hope, there's hope."
