On Orbital Reflections of 9/11: Human strife and religious disagreement like clouds

purple and red and yellow and on fire
What were the skies like when u were young?
They went on for ever and they when I we lived in Arizona and the skies
always had little fluffy clouds and err... they were long and clear and there
were lots of stars, at night.
And errr when it rain it would all turn, it, they were beautiful, the most
beautiful skies as a matter of fact, the sunsets were purple and red and
yellow and on fire and the clouds would catch the colours everywhere,
thats, its neat because I used to look at them all the time when i was
little. You don't see that.
Layering different sounds on top of each other
Layering different sounds on top of each
Lyrics to Orbital's "Little Fluffy Clouds "
I never tire of looking out the window when flying. It's a different world up there. The clouds are upside down. I thought of Orbital's lovely "Little Puffy Clouds" when flying last week, just a few days before the 10th anniversary of terrible 9/11. -gw

Orbital toured stat, eside during October 2001, less than a month after September 11th. I was lucky enough to tag along for the majority of the tour.

On the 13th October we ended up in New York and Orbital played a fantastic gig at the Roseland Ballroom. The day after i decided to clear my tired head by walking from the Hotel to Battery Park. On the way i visited Ground Zero. This film is what i saw…

The is my own acknowledgement to the terrible day on September 11th. My thoughts are with those who lost their love ones and to those who have been affected by the events from that day.

Film : Steve Price
Music : Loopz – “Night (version 1)”

Human strife and religious disagreement complex and disfigure the simple purity and beauty of the divine Cause until clouds obscure the light of reality and disunion results. Therefore, make use of intelligence and reason so that you may dispel these dense clouds from the horizon of human hearts and all hold to the one reality of all the Prophets. It is most certain that if human souls exercise their respective reason and intelligence upon the divine questions, the power of God will dispel every difficulty, and the eternal realities will appear as one light, one truth, one love, one God and a peace that is universal.
