“There are many people writing songs. That is absolutely wonderful.
Who knows, there may be some kid in diapers and he or she might succeed
in capturing in a few dozen words what great writers have spent years trying to say.
Just the right word in the right place with the right melody behind it and the right rhythm.
It might get around the world inch by inch, and people realize that this world is in danger,
that we’re in danger. That’s the way “This Land Is Your Land” got to be so well known.”

Having The Experience, But Missing The Meaning   1 comment

Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time ago

Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them everyone
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

— from “Where Have All The Flowers Gone” by Pete Seeger

We had the experience but missed the meaning
And approach to the meaning restores the experience
in a different form, beyond any meaning

— T. S. Eliot
