I woke up this morning thinking about King Sisyphus. Greek mythology paints a picture of an evil man who, in the afterlife, was condemned by Zeus to push a large boulder up a steep hill, just before reaching the summit the boulder would roll back to the bottom and King Sisyphus would start over, and so it would go, endlessly, for all time thus consigning Sisyphus to an eternity of unending efforts and constant frustration.
By 6am I was listening to radio 4 and eating my usual bowl of porridge. News of Hurricane Sandy dominated the headlines and my thoughts turned to the people of New York and New Jersey, many of their homes, lives and work destroyed in an instant by an uncontrollable and ferocious act of nature, and, like the boulder rolling down the hill, many people will be forced to start over and build everything from scratch and it seems unfair, because, unlike King Sisyphus, their punishment is undeserved.
Abagail Grey will release Snowflake Remember LTD edition EP on 1st December.
On this day I dedicate this song to the people of NY and NJ
