You Think It’s Easy?

Kanye was right when he threw in tracks of the models at clubs saying, “You think it’s easy…”  Of course, that was way before he boarded the KK Train and kind of seemed a cartoon of his former self.  But you know?  You know that his music has a certainty and a unique and authoritative quality rooted in being a black intellectual growing up poor in Chicago.  And I think we can all agree that’s a good thing.  Plus: Bonus!  He has a great sense of humor.

Kanye is a guiding light these days.  Not only is his music insistent, but the inchoate resilience is inspiring.  Really!  It is.

As I prepare the morels, the asparagus, the peppers and onions and garlic for the grilled sausages?  The music creates focus.

And, no, it’s not easy.  Never is.
