Home of The Brave is Wherever You Roar

The last we talked, The Partisan Ship was leaving port… Since then, the tone of media has changed and people who ROAR are starting to be heard.

Let’s celebrate this turning point with a song about the best songs about ROARING! See below for a link to the Spotify playlist. This original song was created from a particular list of works I have been studying for the past month.

Created with Suno, full lyrics available here. (download link)

“If—” by Rudyard Kipling
This poem is a timeless piece about maintaining composure, integrity, and bravery in the face of challenges.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

“Invictus” by William Ernest Henley
A powerful poem about resilience and unyielding spirit in the face of adversity.

I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

“The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost
This poem celebrates the courage to take the unconventional path and make bold choices.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

“Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night” by Dylan Thomas
A fierce call to fight against the dying of the light, urging resistance and bravery.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Où est Maman?

Louise Bourgeois’ iconic sculpture, “Maman,” features a 30-foot (9-meter) high spider made of bronze, stainless steel, and marble. The sculpture was created in 1999 and has been exhibited in various locations around the world. The spider has eight spindly legs, a bulbous body, and two large, shiny marble eggs held in a mesh basket at its center. The title “Maman” means “Mother” in French, and the sculpture is intended to represent the artist’s own mother, who was a weaver and died when Bourgeois was just 21 years old.

Bourgeois’ spider sculptures were inspired by her mother and her own experiences with spiders. She saw spiders as protective, nurturing creatures that also possessed a dangerous and frightening aspect. “Maman” is meant to embody these conflicting emotions and to explore the themes of motherhood, protection, and vulnerability. The sculpture has been interpreted in various ways, with some seeing it as a feminist symbol and others as a representation of the darker side of motherhood.

“Maman” has been exhibited in various locations around the world, including New York’s Rockefeller Center, the Tate Modern in London, and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. The sculpture has become one of Bourgeois’ most famous works and has inspired numerous imitations and reinterpretations by other artists.
