Armor and Sword – a reflection on loss and longing

I loved the Snakes and Arrows album to pieces when it came out. And revisiting it now recently has made me reconnect in a big way to these songs and I find new meaning in them. It is just over two months back that my grandmother finally lost her battle to dementia (and yes, it IS finally, it does become like that, unfortunately). So the words “no one gets to their heaven without a fight” have new resonance to me. I do hope grandma has found her future of eternal light which she shall shine upon us from above.
