What is a "wildflower"? What exactly is a "broken home"? These terms bring to mind beauty, strength, and environmental fortitude. The wildflower sustains itself from what is available to it. Its very survival is a success story in "making do," yet it is no less beautiful than the highly cultivated rose. Would we say that a wildflower comes from a BROKEN home? Why then do we refer to, more often than not, loving homes of certain struggling single parents as "broken"? Broken implies wrong, or needing to be fixed. What is there to be "fixed" when you have love and are making do?
On this musical episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri explore the beauty of wildflowers juxtaposed against the idea of broken homes via their commentary and analysis of "Wildflower" by CeeLo Green and "On Coming From A Broken Home" by Gil Scott-Heron.
