014-Time for Serious Levity Trois
Here’s my latest favorite old song… “Ghost Riders in the Sky” done by Johnny Cash.
This video even has the lyrics!
If you think you know this song from your youth, then it’s time to re-listen. It’s kind of like preparing for Triduum. “Been there. Done that.” Yet with an attitude of curiosity, perhaps Triduum and GRITS (!!!) can speak to us where we live.
Think of this as a morality play in three minutes. Delve into the symbolism: the weather, the herd, the riders, the kind of sky… What does it all add up to? Where does it connect with your experience?
I’ll give my evaluation on Thursday the 19th, OK? It’s a wonderful song. Check it out! Yippie-Yi-Yaaaaay!!
Neat. Never quite heard it that way before! Thanks Roc.
Check out my ‘analysis of the song’ today, Roy. It’s from left field! To be sure! –roc,sj
