Love is love and love is also letting go of the past
“Jungle is made under a violet sky where I found myself in a particularly melancholy nostalgic mood. I was in love and not in love at the same time and everything felt so overwhelming. Life has a funny way of sorting itself out and I guess the emotion that came out in ‘Jungle’ was this feeling of a backwards fall of a cliff into the deep sea. I had to just float and surrender to things unfolding by themselves.”
“I went to the lab with Andreas and created the embryos so we could grow them ready for shooting the video. Luckily they all behaved on set. Who knows, if I am in fact the original Drew or if I am just an oblivious clone? Ha! I did however love Andreas’ idea of creating a visual context of what self-love could look like and he insisted that it was pure.
But I often find my own rendition being of a more self-preserving nature – the pure and naive life as well as the greedy and manipulating. The more I run from who I am the more I become exactly what I’m running from. But I am many different aspects and personalities and accepting all of them for what they are and loving them instead of kicking them and gagging them makes me feel like I am in a forward motion and in the end shedding the old and going into the new. Make sense? Love is love and love is also letting go of the past.”
