Challenge what the future holdsTry and keep your head up to the skyLovers, they may cause you tearsGo ahead release your fearsStand up and be countedDon’t be ashamed to cryYou gotta beYou gotta be bad, you gotta be boldYou gotta be wiser, you gotta be hardYou gotta be tough, you gotta be strongerYou gotta be cool, you gotta be calmYou gotta stay togetherAll I know, all I know, love will save the day
About the Post
Rather than inundate this installation with multiple songs, I chose one of special significance to this semester. “You Gotta Be” by Des’Ree reminds me that in the midst of the challenges and successes of research and scholarship, the love of what you do will truly save the day. Doing this work is a consistent process of falling in love with my work or returning to the love that sustains it.
