Being That Son Who Tried To Chase Some Of Them
I sometimes think of the grand aspirations that American ideals have always had a big hand in, as both the dreams of heros, but also the near ambivalence that seekers of acclaim (reluctant or not) might be after, that also borders on a seduction that can't be helped in any case. And in thinking of complicated seductions, where great passions can come and go in quick succession, I often end up thinking of the song "Dark Angel" by the band Blue Rodeo.
For reason not exactly clear today seemed like a good day to listen to it again.
