‎+++ Live footage of “7x7” +++

This song’s about the belief that after dying we spend 49 days in an in-between state. Buddhists call it the Bardo. Sometimes it’s described as climbing up a road or path on a mountainside. Sometimes it sounds more like being exiled to the outskirts of a town where you’re not exactly welcome anymore, or at least not yet. Sometimes it’s more positive. I tend to think we enter an in-between phase like that every time a big change happens to us. Seven weeks sounds like about how long it takes to get used to yourself again. It’s normal. Feels good to think about that. -DJF
