I’m playing the new album by James Varda – Chance and Time. It is beautiful but so incredibly poignant.
I hope James is taking an artistic stance but this sounds like his valedatory last offering.
Life may be just one thing after another but it is so full of wonder and awe. It means so much to me as well, James. That’s what hurts so much. It could be so wonderful. I live in England’s civilised Eden, complete with wild birds, blue and green, and I see the fanatics reducing it to brown dirt and red blood.
I want to pass the idyll on – not the disaster we are creating.
This album is so atmospheric and emotionally charged. It is surely Jame’s best album.
It’s not quite too late. That sun may still shine on us. I hope it shines on you James. You’re a source of light and warmth. We need your sensitivity to build a new zeitgeist!
What a talent. What a delight.
What a wonderful album that takes you on that life journey.
