Moment of Surrender: Journey Through Iran

I just made my first video with Apple's "iMovie" and U2's phenomenal "Moment of Surrender." I can't get enough of this song. It's as good as "One" or "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own," if not much better. Brian Eno's influence is all over it (along with übermate, Daniel Lanois), as it is on most of No Line On The Horizon. He's always been involved in pursuing a type of secular gospel music, hymns for the galaxy, more recently with David Byrne on Everything That Happens Will Happen Today.

"Moment of Surrender" captures the epiphinal flow of grace in the midst of turbulence...oi!

All the photos were taken by Yuko during our travels last summer - most are from Bam, Yazd and Shiraz.
