Kim Burrell - “Victory” 2000

We’re going to switch from Jill to Kim.

Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Shake loose, rejoice and celebrate, and know that you have the victory.

(While none of those sayings are scripture without context, they all come from songs that are based on scripture or that are scripture set to music… for the technical folks…)

And you know what… despite it all, I have victory.

BOW.

My nomad has been evolving into something that I don’t like.  We’ve been here for too long.  We’re beginning to adapt.  We’re beginning to gather.  We’re beginning to hope that he hunts.  But there is no need for meat like wild game.  I can survive.  We can survive.  The era will not end.

It’s time to move.

"Insomnia" by Jill Scott

It is 4 a.m.
And I’m waitin’ in our bed alone
Dreamin’ of your embrace
Wishing you would come back home

But you don’t call and you don’t come
And you don’t say that you miss me
And you don’t stop on your way by to say hi
I’m feelin’ crazy

It is 5 a.m.
And I’m waiting by the phone again
This is not how it’s ‘sposed to be
You’re ‘sposed to be here with me

But you’re gone now, you’re just gone now
You don’t even think about the way I feel
'Cause you're gone now, you're just gone now
When I know you should be right here

It’s 6 o’clock in the mornin’
And I’m so tired of yawnin’
And I am miserable and feelin’ blue
'Cause all I really want is you

But you don’t call and you don’t come
And you don’t say that you miss me
And you don’t stop on your way by to say hi
I’m feelin’ crazy

It’s 7 o’clock in the a.m.
In 15 minutes this alarm will be ringin’
At work, no one will feel my pain
It’s a crime the way things change

Time to wake up, put on my strong face
And hope that no one will know
You have managed to turn me
From a woman of substance

Into a ‘Brick flying, calling too damn much
Cryin’ and cryin’, spyin’ way down, down low with flats on
From the opposite side of the [Incomprehensible]
Easy off, load on the top of your car’ chick
I never intended to be this chick

Rope in that smoke for her mind
Or the readily dissolving remnants of it
After being chased, I’ve been dismissed
As just an object, something to play with
You have managed to turn me
From a woman of substance to this

Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov (via observando)

Do not be afraid to reclaim your heart and walk away.  You aren’t married.  So don’t act like it.

Don’t worry about if people look at you weird.  You continue to dance.
