Hey, it’s Rita. Anyone remember Christmas 1981? ‘Find My Way Home’ by Jon and Vangelis was playing everywhere. Well, anyway, in Brighton so it was. I so totally connected with the song even though I didn’t really get the meaning of it then. Today I still love it like new and I’ve come to realize this song points to the music I make. I can see how ‘Am I so lost in my sin’ stands for acting out disturbing emotions, acting out guilt, shame, anger, fear, because we are not aware of them and/or don’t know what to do with them.
I used mine to write songs about who and where I wanted to be. I was basically looking for love, joy and peace, and I just didn’t know how to find any of that. I wrote these songs with the faint hope they might help me, having in mind something like: ‘Make talk an altar for prayer, somehow you’ll find you are there’, and a subtle knowing about the power of music.
Here I am, eight years after my first song. It’s taken a long time, but things are looking up. I’m finding my way home. Thanks to all who inspired me on the way.
