Amidst all the troubles in the world and on the eve of Valentine's Day, Michael Meade delves into Greek mythology to bring back the sense of Eros as the spirit of love and original agent of creation. For life on earth to begin, Eros had to crack open the cosmic egg; the same life-enhancing spirit is necessary now for life on earth to continue. Meade links Eros, as the open heart that connects us to each other, with Kairos as the moment in which time breaks and we find ourselves back in touch with things that are timeless. By the end of the recording poets like Machado, Rumi and Hafiz have joined the recitation, showing ways that we all might escape the traps of the time and find our erotic connections to the living world as well as to each other.
