Expression

"To express yourself is your birthright." Louise Bourgeois

One of my favorite songs is First Floor Generator by Freelance Whales.  I love everything about the song and often listen to it on repeat when I have the house to myself (When you play the song on repeat the song never ends, continuously looping back into itself, which is a clever and lovely illustration of the song's lyrics).  Tucked away inside the song are the lyrics "/And in our native language we are chanting ancient songs./"  I love the idea that perhaps we all have our own native language of expression that comes most easily and naturally to us and are each using our personal form of expression to speak of the emotions and story lines that have always been familiar to humans.
