Paul Watson – What I want is peace

Paul Watson:

The big question, you know, “What do we really want?”.

I used to say happiness…

And then it took me some time to come around to understanding that what we really want is love.

In the sense of a universal love that gives you strength when you are dying.

You’re not afraid, because you know your presence is acknowledged and you are loved.

And that gives you the comfort to go.

I’ve sort of reached a stage more recently where I think what we all want is peace.

And that’s certainly what I want now.

I just need peace.

My current goal as an author is to get my stories down to this level of efficiency :

Down by the Riverside motel,
it’s 10 below and falling
by a 99 cent store she closed her eyes
and started swaying
but it’s so hard to dance that way
when it’s cold and there’s no music
well your old hometown is so far away
but, inside your head there’s a record
that’s playing, a song called

Hold on
