I keep having this general feeling of something is about to happen. Something big and life-changing. I don’t know if it is excitement or tension I am feeling, but if feels fragile. And yet, my life just keeps going on almost uneventful…..

Inspired by the words of the Depeche Mode song “Fragile Tension”

Well it’s a fragile tension, that’s keeping us going.
It may not last forever, but of all wind is blowing.

There’s something magical in the air.
Some things so tragic we have to care.

It’s a strange obsession, it’s drawing us nearer.
We don’t understand it, it never get’s clearer.

There’s something mystical in our dreams.
They’re so simplistic it kicks and screams.

Oh when we see too recon the art occult that nothing can keep us down.

It’s a dizzying feeling that’s keeping us flying.
Some glittering gauntlet, without even trying.

There’s something magical in our hands.
Nothing logical to our plans.
