What Would Happen?

(London tunnel. Photograph by Moby.)

I listened to "Destroyed", Moby's latest album, all weekend. Have you ever heard a song that within moments fills you with strength and comfort and resonates down to the core of your being? Well, that's how I felt the first time I heard "Lie Down in Darkness"...and I'm betting you will too.

It's poetic.
It's impassioned.
It's quasi-hymnal.
But more than anything, it's completely and totally inspiring.

It made me spend my Sunday creating this for you:

P. S. Moby has created a fascinating website to accompany his album. Click HERE.

Director's Thanks:
I would like to give a special shout-out to the shelled creature I discovered in my garden who so tirelessly performed take after take for me until the afternoon light was just right. There's nothing like a Hollywood stunt snail.

It's funny how some Moby songs have that effect on us. "One of these mornings" does it to me. It hits you like right under or inside your diaphragm....that's my best way of describing it without using my hands.

That was wonderful to watch this evening, after a particularly hectic Monday. Great looking snail, too. Do't see many of them around SoCal much, lately.

Loved this! I have been doing all of this - slowing down in order to notice, enjoy, listen to everything around me! Thanks for sharing!

Moby is genius., and would appreciate your video. My answer is "yes" to all of your questions. A big "YES"!!!

Ah, thanks Lisa! This arrived in my inbox just at the right moment - I was sleep-deprived and stressed but you set me right. I was so inspired I posted about it this morning on my blog,
I love the way you write and your worldview. Keep creating the way you do.
