Re: Considering Frodo and the Ring...

Hi, Diem Kieu! I'm so glad that you are enjoying Mechtild's (and my) work. About as heavy metal as I get is Led Zep and/or Aerosmith and I imagine they don't really qualify too much any more when you think of heavy metal. "Sickened" is an interesting song and it sort of points up to me the commonality of human experience. Everyone, it seems, has had (or has) an obsession which makes them feel ill in a myriad of ways. Desiring something that you know to be bad or wrong for you leaches away so much that is beautiful and worthwhile inside. That is part of the burden of being human, whether the object of our desire is as simple as another human or a symbolically evil Ring. And doing what in our heart we know to be right may empty us, if we've cast our entire being into the *sickness* of our obsessions.....

thank you for the lyrics, they are powerful indeed!
