The World We Mustn’t Live In

Two thoughts slam me at once. They can’t be correlated, but mustn’t they?

The first thought is that we live in a tired, busy world; a world of busy tiredness; a world of tired busyness. Such is our world: tired and busy, busy and tired.

The second thought is that an electric guitar amplified with bristling feedback is ideally suited to provide the silences between voicings of a well-fingered acoustic guitar.

One thought leads to the other and back, mustn’t it?
