Work is busy and my home life is filled with conundrums to solve....I need music in my life for its therapeutic qualities. 'Play something gentle.' I request of Lou as we're travelling to catch the school bus. He often puts on The Innocence Mission.
I'm going back thirty years to sixth form and university days when I revisit the music of Jon and Vangelis. A boyfriend from those times was scathing. It's so freakin' hippy and he was a fan of obscure indie artists who were heavy on angst. But the love and peace vibes are restorative and soothing. This video must be a clip from 'Top of the Pops' as evidenced by all that hand waving.
Jon Anderson, the singer, has a belief system that Wikipedia describes as syncretic, a blending of different faith traditions. I like that word. It seems to fit the bill for me too.
