About My Love

A little belated, but here is a Valentine’s Day tune from Jessie Ware & Sampha, entitled Valentine.  It beautifully expresses the vulnerabilities we experience when we open ourselves up to love, fully, completely.

Vulnerability seems to be all about right now.  It reigns supreme in the editing suite as we sift through the footage and piece together our journey to South Africa, in preparation to share the story with you in the late Spring.

It’s not a bad thing, vulnerability.  You have to get raw and go deep to get to the root and heart of a story, to share it in a way that makes someone else’s heart beat just as much as yours.  So this is good, but it requires deep breaths and patience.  So does love.  And so this all makes sense.  This project, OPEN South Africa, is a labor of love.  My biggest one yet.

Happy Valentine’s Day…

So will you never be my lover or my Valentine 
never be a friend of mine, never see my better side, 
maybe you’d be terrified of all the secrets you were wishing you won’t ever find deep inside me.
And i don’t wanna hide me.

cause i know about my love
cause i know about my love
cause i know about my love
cause i know about my love

Yeah, pick it fast like a flight far away from here
Although i know i feel at home whenever you are near
Oh i love you but i can’t cold cut to this (so just don’t cut it, want you near)

I wish you’d just hold me open just to see your vision clear (i’m always here)

cause i know about my love
(cause i know about my, know about my love)
cause i know about my love
(cause i know about my, know about my love)
cause i know about my love
(cause i know about my, know about my love)
cause i know about my love
(cause i know, know, know about my love)
