Lately, I’ve heard a couple of people say regarding politics and the news that we live in a post-fact world where feelings are what matters. As a musician, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about, reading about, and generally paying attention to emotion. I study this condition we are all suffering from called “Being Human.” I have to in order to do my job, to be expressive, to connect with others, and to accurately convey my own experiences in relatable ways.
So here are the two things you need to know about your feelings:
- Your feelings are important.
- Your feelings are irrelevant.
Welcome to the paradox, Alice. Let’s head down the rabbit hole.
