What to me to had to be the absurdness, insurmountable difficulty, in acting nor feeling normal, during a period -- my base, South Africa in the 1980's -- when political violence and civil strife seemed normative.
Dealing with (personal) loss and anger against this and embracing spirituality, trying, as a necessary blanket of modesty(serenity, taqdeer) and gratitude -- ' I've got space in my pocket and wind in my shoes'
The video clip was recorded spontaneously at an event after a once-off rehearsal (twenty odd years later)
