I'm not sure, as a newbie writer, that I should confess how difficult it is to find words to express how powerful this video is for me. The video itself explores the idea that we all carry around our stories wherever we go. How can we ever judge someone in a split second without knowing where they've come from, what they're going through and where they're headed?
The song itself blends into U2's song "One". To me, the lyrics invoke the theme of One World, One Hope, which was not only the theme of the landmark 1996 International AIDS Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia but also the title of the iconic image painted for the conference by Vancouver treasure Joe Average.
Isn't it magnificent?
Years ago there was an episode of Ally McBeal when her psychiatrist told Ally she should have a theme song. I think that's wonderful advice! Though I'm not sure I could name just ONE song as a personal theme, this video definitely encompasses what is important to me for this blog and for my writing.
What about you? Do you have a theme song?
