Rungs In A Ladder - Jacob Bannon
A Film by Ian McFarland
I watch this from time to time when I’m feeling uninspired or unmotivated. At first, it was just really cool to learn more about Jacob Bannon and hear about his life - but now it’s become a source of inspiration. When I can’t get my shit together, when my mind is all over the place, or when I’m feeling lost and useless; I watch this, and it helps snap things back into perspective.
Thanks Jacob for sharing your life and insight with us, and thanks Ian McFarland for making such a beautiful and well done documentary. Cheers.
“Crave. Crawl. Drench. Cleanse
Commitment is dead. Purity is dead. Values are dead.
Truth’s the enemy. Feeling’s the enemy. Innocence is the enemy
Believer’s a fool. Loyal’s the fool.
Hope will destroy. Faith will destroy. Compassion destroys.
And you can cleanse yourself
You crave. You crawl. You’re drenched.
And you can cleanse yourself”
