By Anna Kanes I have always wondered what it is like to be with you. The vivid memory of how we first met, every detail of it seems so surreal. They say, “the unexpected moment is always sweeter”- surprisingly, I second this.
I spent a bulk of my summer holidays working alongside a team of 20 people – supervised by a lovely manager we all adored. During our Christmas dinner, we surprised her with a handmade scrapbook. It was stressful for us because my manager isn't just a manager. She's also a trained sign writer (so she wrote all the signs and labels in the store), and scrapbooking is one of her hobbies. It was a war to see who could curate the nicest page. One colleague had the advantage of using a contraption called a "brush pen" to give her writing a calligraphy-feel – quite a tool to tug at the creative heartstrings of our sign writer-slash-manager.
When we first listened to their music, we were transported to another dimension and we knew that we were exactly where we needed to be. Lucky for us, we got up close and personal with these boys, and here's what we asked.
I envy them, this I admit unabashedly. Their capacity to take on the world and all its complexities with unflagging courage, intermingled with the blessed gift of lingering innocence. I have become so afraid of the world and so dispassionate of life, and I catch the same traces of indifference in places, faces, people. I think it’s so easy to forget the beauty of the good when the earth is abound with so much tragedy and tribulation. But there is still life. We just need to remember how to live it once more.
