Broken Castles: I Am Not Afraid

New work from Steven Billups in our traditional jaunt to Germany… Always a highlight in my calendar. I really love working with him.

This is ‘part one’ – abandoned castles (film). Parts two and three (water and rivers; flowers made of sun) can come later…

I was listening to this Jill Scott track (<<< click on it for a soundtrack to your viewing!) when I looked through the images he sent me. Her voice was often in my ear in the past and I'm enjoying re-listening to all of her work. Lyrics:

“I’m Not Afraid”

I’m not afraid to be your lady
I’m not afraid to be your whore
I’m not afraid to be your future
I’m not afraid to be your soil
In which you plant your seed
Flowers, they sprout for me
My fragrance in the breeze
You must nurture me please
I’m not afraid to be your baby
I’m not afraid to be your strength
I’m not afraid to be open wide
I’m not afraid to be glutinous
The essence of glue
I will stick to you
Through earthquakes and moods
If ever one thing was true
I’m not afraid to wind it, wind it
I’m not afraid to keep your pace
I’m not afraid to create my queendom
I’m not afraid to take my place
I’m not afraid

As always, it’s best to click on the first image then use the arrow keys to scroll through (it makes them bigger!).
