“The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.” – James Taylor
Think Taylor’s ever been to Iceland? Think he’s ever spent a morning at Jökulsárlón, enjoying the passage of time while watching the passage of icebergs, each floe unique from the one that came before it? Think he’s sat on the nearby ridgeline, watching the colors ascend from behind Vatnajökull Glacier, slowly at first but building into a crescendo of crimson and gold?
Taylor’s lyrics are about living in the moment; they’re about meditation, reflection and daydreams. And they’re fitting for Jökulsárlón, a place where dreams come alive and where the passage of time becomes an exquisite art show.
