There are men headlining our media with political influence, religious influence, financial influence and social influence.
Some of these men shape the world in which we live.
I know that women play their part in the troubles of the world, however, if you review the news stories across the media at any given time most of the bad news will reference more men.
I recently attended a long weekend music festival in the beautiful surrounds of Port Fairy a coastal town in south western Victoria in Australia.
The town transforms into a vibrant hub of creativity and at it’s core is the art of story telling via music, art, performance and words.
It was a wonderful opportunity to take a break from the world and get lost in the sounds of folk, rock, roots and blues. Lucky me!
One late afternoon I listened to the the deep Irish tones of Luka Bloom. The music website allmusic.com describe Luka’s artistic mood as:
“Earnest. Intimate. Reflective. Wistful. Organic. Bittersweet. Gentle. Plaintive. Melancholy. Literate”
Check him out if you haven’t already.
He shared a wonderful song which cast a passionate, melodic shadow on the true nature of men beyond power, abuse, manipulation, hatred and greed.
The song was called Heart Man.
The lyrics are below:
Let me know in the comments section below.
Check out the you tube clip that accompanies the song, it’s on the MRC Facebook page
