Play'Immediate Situation'

by Lyle K'ang

I sat down in the sun near a homeless woman with her eyes closed. Although her belongings (all she owned) were scattered on the cement walkway around her, she was invisible to passersby. Her eyes were closed. I said, "Hello". She didn't say anything. I watched but her mouth did not move, though I could have sworn I heard her say, 'Immediate Situation!'

Comments for 'Immediate Situation'

Portrait of Lyle K'ang
THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND AND INSIGHTFUL COMMENTS FROM THE HEART..

LIKE THE HOMELESS WOMAN SAID, "IT'S AN IMMEDIATE SITUATION"!

I left her for a moment, went across the street to a coffee house and asked to borrow a pencil and paper. I anxiously started to write down what I had heard. Slowly, more and more came to mind, until I had the makings of a song. I went back and sat next to her and thanked her for the song. Just like the minutes previously, she did not say anything - just rocked back and forth with so much pain. I got up and started to walk around several blocks to make sense of it all. As suddenly as the words came, my mind flooded with music. I moved the words with rhythm and rhyme. I stopped a woman going into a shop and asked her to listen to the first part of my song and give me her honest opinion. She liked it very much. This is how 'Immediate Situation' came about

I had just started a new job as a HUD-funded project manager working with an agency assisting the homeless in Yakima. My scope is to work with a team of devoted individuals creating freezing weather shelters for the homeless. Last winter, after seven weeks of intensive meetings with the community, two churches agreed to serve as shelters

Very dynamic arrangement, starting out with the strings and ending up with an electric guitar. Especially like the emotional vocals and lyrics with their message.Added to favorites.
