Love dares you 12.6.18

I can’t wait to see Bohemian Rhapsody.

I could keep the song Under Pressure, that Freddie Mercury and David Bowie sing together, on repeat for hours. That song feels like a warm blanket, a cozy room or a comforting embrace. It is also a call to action. They dare you to change your ways, to care for ourselves so we can care for those on the edges.

Why can’t we give love, give love, give love, give love
Give love, give love, give love, give love, give love?
‘Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love (people on streets) dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
These lyrics run through my heart and mind regularly as I struggle to make meaning the division that abounds in the media, our country, the world. What if we all really worked to care for the people on the edge of the night?

Today’s Prompt:
Take two or more images, cut them up and combine them back together to make a new composition.

Everyday through December 25th, I’ll be making a 5×5 inch collage, writing a short entry on this blog and sharing a prompt for those who might want to participate along with me. You can follow my progress by subscribing to this blog through the sidebar on the blog homepage, or by following me on Instagram.

    I appreciated your posting the video to accompany your words. I had never seen this performance before. It took me back – and seeing the lyrics helped me to appreciate the song all the more (I am horrible with hearing lyrics!).
