When I think of the life I have had in the pentecostal persuasion and all that comes with the territory, the title of the song fits perfectly as a constant lurking idea that absorbs light into the abyss. The flirtation with the religious and the goodness that can be present within all human beings begs the question, "Is this song saying that religion absorbs any goodness [light] from within man and attempts to turn men to complete darkness"?
I'm sitting here in a cosy Airbnb in Melbourne taking stock of 2017 and making a list of things I'd love to see become a reality in 2018. Like all of us, life goes up and down and we mountaintop moments and moments in the valley. There's nothing surprising about that. However, I am a firm believer that it is what we do with those moments that can move us forward in life. It's the inspiration that we take from mountaintop moments that continues to fuel us when we are in that valley.
The first post on my new website. I hope to keep this updated with regular happenings, thoughts and trinkets that I might think would be great to share with the world. Stay close. I'll be in touch!
