Once Beyond Hopelessness

It is impossible to measure the effect that music has on conjuring a mood. Music, alone, is already profoundly capable… but music – plus pictures – plus momentum of a story (as in a movie) is in the realm of the most sublime of experiences our minds can understand… (I say “understand” because drugs, dreams, and sex are, I guess, sublime as well, but we don’t understand them… I don’t anyway). Years of wonder and fear can be evoked in a ten second scene… It is a real motherfucker.
