2day a nice song

It’s by Josh a singer and songwriter from Ohio/US of A. Check out his web site if you like the song!


This one’s called “Darién Gap”, and is about the 100-mile stretch of rebel-controlled jungle between Panama and Colombia. Despite the fact that North and South America are connected by land that’s 30 miles wide, there are no roads between them, so it’s impossible to drive to South America from here.

I was a waiter in North Baltimore
Down by the tracks and the video store where you worked
Three times a day you’d come in for a drink
I’d bring you a coffee, you’d pay with a wink and a smile

One day I saw you and pulled up a stool
I said, “Kathy, I’ve known you since first grade in school on the bus”
You always had talked about seeing the world
I never imagined you’d still be the girl down the street

I asked, “why are you still here?”, you just looked confused
You told me “you can’t drive from here to Peru in a car,
In Panama you’ll hit the Darién Gap
There’s suddenly nothing but white on the map and you’re done…

We are one, but not quite connected
We are one, but light years apart
We are one, but not quite connected
We are one…”

Now it’s been so long since I wandered away
But I still think about what you told me that day in the bar
I wonder if you’re still marooned with a globe
Waiting for someone to pave you a road to your dreams

He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

In 1889, William Butler Yeats met Maud Gonne, an actress and revolutionary, who became his great love for the next 20 years. She was the inspiration of his life and his imagination. However, he never received her love in return.

He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

had i the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
enwrought with golden and silver light,
the blue and the dim and the dark cloths
of night and light and the half-light,
i would spread the cloths under your feet:
but i, being poor, have only my dreams;
i have spread my dreams under your feet;
tread softly because you tread upon my dreams.

The short has been made by Heebok Lee and showcased all around the world, from One Dot Zero to Siggraph. And it’s great.

The music comes from Escaflowne original sound track by Hajime Mizoguchi and Yoko Kanno. Voice by David Winters.
