    no time for foolish things There is no heaven there is no hell There s only you my dark angel There are people who come into your life who seem too pure for this world For them the membrane that separates our protective delusions from the cruel world is paper thin They feel too acutely empathize too much Often and perversely they re the ones who come into the world with the heaviest burdens They wear a halo of vulnerability but conceal a deep strength too They are the old souls Maybe they re the real angels Maybe heaven and hell are here now In pursuit of some idealized version of the future and of ourselves we overlook what s staring us in the face Our ragged imperfect selves living in our ragged imperfect present Each others angels each others saviors and if there is no hereafter and there is only here life is still a beautiful disaster ah but we both know that my dear BeliefNet com has featured Dark Angel as their Song Of The Week Click on the link to preview the song Many

series of blog entries about the songs on the upcoming album Hello Cruel World to be released January 2012 New Orleans 2010 Earthquake shook the California ground Took a freeway out and some buildings down Well I ve never felt the earth move under my heels But I got a pretty good idea how it feels Flood fire earthquake hurricane tsunami We go from calamity to calamity Hello cruel world Meanwhile the world spins on unconcerned deaf to our questioning Why is this happening What does it mean We seek explanation we blame God we blame each other we blame the Other We look for signs and portents To infer meaning from random events it s hubris it s human Does nature make mistakes Does God Is it possible that none of it means anything or more probably that the answer is so far beyond us that we can t comprehend the question We build our houses on fault lines we give our most vulnerable selves to each other and sooner or later disaster strikes Keep your heart and your door closed and you may be able to avoid pain but you never feel the wild aliveness of the world Open your heart and you risk it all Love is a natural disaster They say it was a miracle no one died Just two people hurt and some wounded pride Love takes everything in its path And leaves you breathless in the aftermath Natural Disaster by Gretchen Peters 2011 Circus Girl Music ASCAP from the upcoming album Hello Cruel

This is the third in a series of blog entries about the songs on the upcoming album Hello Cruel World to be released January 2012 Pelham New York 1960s They re in the front seat he s got the radio low And the moon hangs over Idlewild as the planes touch down He is talking but she s not listening She is thinking of her father who died when she was young In the mid 1960s my little world and the much larger one around me were both coming apart at the seams You don t see the correlation until much later years later but it s there and from the distance of decades it takes on its own kind of symmetry From that distance another thing becomes visible how much things have changed and how little Families still fall apart hate still spawns more hate the names change but the troubles don t My father was a journalist his beat was the Civil Rights movement After John F Kennedy was assassinated my father in a state of grief and anger locked himself in the basement As a small child I found that terrifying Not long afterwards the family of Medgar Evers the slain civil rights leader came to stay at our home in Pelham New York so that his widow Myrlie and my father could work on her memoir During their visit there was a snowstorm and their youngest son Van and I built a snowman together in the front yard It was the first time Van had ever seen snow He was momentarily transported beyond his grief by the magic of it On our black and white TV in the kitchen I watched Kennedy riding in the back of a limo shot fatally wounded and falling into his wife s lap over and over again In my front yard I played in the snow with a little boy who saw his father gunned down in his own driveway The political is personal the personal is political We think we re walking on the moon but we are dancing in the dark We shoot our rockets we shoot our presidents We shoot the commies and the niggers and the Viet Cong Everything changes everything stays the same And the moon hangs over Idlewild as the planes touch down Idlewild by Gretchen Peters 2010 Circus Girl Music ASCAP from the upcoming album Hello Cruel World Posted in Blog and tagged as 1960s civil rights family hello cruel world
