I have been realizing this week that I have been much much needier in my relationships over these past 2 weeks. I attribute this to the terror of DT, mourning the loss of HRC, and already missing Obama. I’ve been sending semi-emotional emails to people and missing people in my real life pretty desperately when I don’t see them/talk to them in a while.
These lyrics (below) from “Heaven on my mind” from Jesus Christ Superstar have been in my head all day long. They seem kind of fitting. It’s kind of weird when a lyric gets stuck in your head, and then you stop to think about the words and why you are thinking about them, and you realize how profoundly they fit how you are feeling!
“Heaven on my mind” from Jesus Christ Superstar
“You’ve begun to matter more
Than the things you say...”
“You have set them all on fire
They think they’ve found the new Messiah
And they’ll hurt you when they find they’re wrong”
