Ji-Hae Park: The Violin, and my dark night of the soul

Published on May 24, 2013
In her quest to become a world-famous violinist, Ji-Hae Park fell into a severe depression. Only music was able to lift her out again — showing her that her goal needn’t be to play lofty concert halls, but instead to bring the wonder of the instrument to as many people as possible.

The Known and the Unknown – #9

I recommend
the following
course
of action

for those
who are just
beginning
their careers

or

for those
like me,
who may be
reconfiguring
midway through

heed the words
of Robert Frost

Start with
a big
fat Lump
in your throat

start with
a profound
sense
of WRONG

a deep homesickness

or a crazy
Love Sickness

and run
with it.

If you
imagine less

less is
what you
undoubtedly
deserve.

DO
WHAT
YOU
LOVE

and
don’t stop
until
you get
what
you Love.

Work
as hard
as you can

imagine
immensities

don’t
compromise

and

don’t
waste
time.

Start
N0w.

Not

not

“Another Day” – Roy Harper

“Another Day”

The kettle’s on,
the sun has gone
another day
She offers me Tibetan tea
on a flower tray

She’s at the door,
she wants to score
She dearly needs to say

I loved you a long time ago, you know
Where the wind’s own forget-me-nots blow
But I just couldn’t let myself go
not knowing what on earth there was to know.

But I wish that I had ’cause I’m feeling so sad
that I never had one of your children.

And across the room, inside a tomb
our chance is waxed and wanes
The night is young,
why are we so hung up
in each others chains?

Forget-Me-Not-field

I must take her,
I must make her
while the dove domains
and feel the juice run as she flies
run my wings under her sighs
as the flames of eternity rise
to lick us with the first born lash of dawn.

Oh really my dear
I can’t see what we fear
Sat here with ourselves in between us.

And at the door
we can’t say more
than just “another day”
and without a sound
I turn around
and I walk away.
