Dear Friends, Here's the third installment in a series of new videos. I hope you enjoy, and please share! It’s an inconvenient truth that, a lot of the time, there’s something or somebody out there just waiting to pull the rug out from under me. To send me tumbling, maybe only as far as the floor if there’s no trap door, but maybe even further if there is. Until, at some point, I’m able to scramble my way back up again. But that is a whole different story, one that doesn’t really figure in this song.
Unfamiliar Place focuses on the first part, the falling. And, implicitly, about living with the uncertainty that comes when the ground disappears out from under me. Accepting the lack of “all the things that propped me up and kept me steady” – for a while at least, or maybe forever. Unfamiliar Place points to the fact that the rules of the game are changing all the time (“even the ground keeps moving”) and that it’s best not to jump to conclusions, whether I’ve got a parachute or not.
I don’t know what to tell you about that fellow who gets into the taxi, however. How or if he managed to scramble his way out of that situation.
I might have to write a sequel one day. But until then, your guess will just have to be as good as mine …
