Coping Strategies

detail from The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch

View the world with wide-eyed wonder. Celebrate loss. Say "so what?" to adversity. Discard your trophies. Try not to remember. Gain wisdom with age. Shout into the abyss. Talk with friends. These and other "coping strategies" are suggested in songs by Clogs, Caetano Veloso & David Byrne, Wingdale Community Singers, Diane Cluck, Jennifer Castle, Richard Thompson, Scott Walker, and others. David Garland presents a musical array of beautiful, creative, conflicting advice.
