A couple of short-but-great posts for you to chew on, courtesy of Rosemary (aka étrangère).
In the first, she helpfully considersthe role of the song writer in shaping our thoughts and attitudes, drawing interesting links to Lady Gaga and her recent hit, Born This Way. Whereas I’ve previously blogged more about the way LG reflects the values already in society, Rosemary helpfully suggests that she’s also shaping the way people think.
As a follow up/prequel she then suggests that song writers and story tellers, while their work might not always be true, do always point us to the fact we live in a “meaning-drenched universe” – a hint that there is a bigger story written and performed by a greater Song Writer.
They’re definitely worth pondering…
