Last week I released a simple lyric video of my song Dark Night of the Soul to my YouTube channel. It’s an older song and so I didn’t expect a lot of response to the release, but quite a few of you watched it, and many sent me personal notes which suggest that the song resonates out there still.
It still resonates for me too. I hadn’t thought about the song for a while, but while re-recording the vocal for the video, the song grabbed me in a way I wasn’t expecting and I found myself scurrying to my books to read the St. John of the Cross’ 16th-century poem and commentary that inspired my song. While reading the poem and commentary I suddenly felt the urge to call up my old friend Dr Bruce Hindmarsh who has studied and taught on both the poem and the commentary at Regent College in Vancouver. I knew he would be able to take me deeper into St. John’s life and legacy. And I also thought that several of you may be interested as well… so I recorded the zoom call and you are welcome to listen in:
