I don’t always scrap a semester’s worth of plans the week before school starts, but when I do, it’s probably because I watched a Hozier video.
I may very well have been one of the last people to watch Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” video. For whatever reason, it wasn’t even on my radar until the end of summer when a close friend of mine put an iPad in my hands and said, “Here watch this.” I watched it once, and then again, put my sunglasses on and stared out the window for a long time. It was maybe one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen and at the same time gave me the feeling that I’d been punched and might throw up at any moment. If you’ve seen it, maybe you know what I mean. If you haven’t, you should.
