:: A Very Emotional Post From Adam Naworal
During my existence I have experienced a lot of loss. Family members, friends, personal belongings...... you name it, I've lost it over the years.
About a year ago I lost my one constant in Florida before Aimee Grace Naworal came along: my beloved orange tabby Roger. He passed away due to humane reasons (his cancer got so bad I morally couldn't let it continue) around the same time my folks' boxer Daisy passed away, literally within days of each other. If Aimee wasn't here I would have been a mess.
Through all my losses, one song has provided consistent comfort:
Roy Montgomery's "Jaguar Meets Snake". To me this is the VERY embodiment of loss and acceptance. IE, yes, you lost something, but life goes on because those you lost would want it that way. Give somebody a hug today, fellow Electronic Cottagers. Tell someone you love them. On the hopefully-later-than-sooner occasion that you feel how I do, come back to this song. I promise you, it's transcendent. Roy recorded it after the love of his life died and he dealt with it by taking a trip to Temple IV in Guatemala. I recommend the whole album, but in this strange state of nostalgia I'm in I WILL focus on "Jaguar Meets Snake". Take care, all, and love those close to you. You never know when they'll be gone.
