At the music concert the other night, one line by Bliss N Eso really caught my attention…
All I know is the sun is shining yet we fight all through the night
It’s in a song called ‘The Sea Is Rising’ about our collective refusal to tackle environmental issues seriously. However for me, it reflects how easy it is to get caught up in our daily anxieties and forget how beautiful the world is. This is such a part of the modern condition, leading to serious mental health issues, such as depression and psychosis.
