2023.02 : Too Damn Much

San Jose, CA U.S.A. Circa 2023

Love, I don’t like to see so much pain
So much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

All my instincts, they return
The grand facade, so soon will burn
Without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

In your eyes
I am complete (in your eyes)

— Peter Gabriel

As a society, we find ourselves once again staring down yet another daunting year of anxiety and turmoil. For me, in three simple words, “Too Damn Much” encapsulates it all. It’s so intense for so many that there’s only one answer: love. It always has been, it always will be, and it still is. Not a cliche, but a truism so self-evident that it’s almost too obvious to mention. However, it’s important to be reminded of it constantly.

The lyrics of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” are a masterpiece capturing the human condition and our aspirations in an honest and beautiful way. The accompanying video performance of the song is equally breathtaking.

And now … know the photograph.
