Lo Que el Agua Me Dio

Florence Welch:

It's a song for the water, because in music and art what I'm really interested in are the things that are overwhelming. The ocean seems to me to be nature's great overwhelmer. When I was writing this song I was thinking a lot about all those people who've lost their lives in vain attempts to save their loved ones from drowning. It's about water in all forms and all bodies. It's about a lot of things; Virginia Woolf creeps into it, and of course Frida Kahlo, whose painfully beautiful painting gave me the title.

  1. Few things are finer than heading up to Lake Erie and getting lost, observing.

    Hey, how was the play?

  2. It was GREAT! STELLAR! AMAZING! I'm going to do a post on Richard III soon ...
