    The idea of the, say, “clockmaker” of a garden as a beekeeper (keeping all the flowers pollenated) strikes me as retroactively genius. How is that not some common archetype/literally motif etc? I’ve found that if you listen? to the songs grouped into these “Gardens”, it’s easier to “click” with them, so to speak. Like the dark organ sounds on the title track, but those three songs have a weird way of sticking with you.

    I absolutely love the Beekeeper, and these interviews with Tori! I had a moment of illumination when she said that the bee’s flight path is Infinity…It’s the truth, and so is Tori! That, and when she was saying how the Beekeeper reassured her that her? Mother would awaken “Somewhere”, even if it wasn’t on the same plane. This woman is SO deep, as well as talented. This is why she’s my fav female artist ever!

    Can someone tell me what order the videos go in? I have “The Beekeeper” in front of me and it has the different sections listed, but i can’t ? tell which order they go in. It looks like “desert garden” is first – it’s at the top. But then lower and to the left is “elixirs and herbs” and to the right is “rock garden”. Any help would be very appreciated!

    Hi EWFs! 🙂

    sometimes? i wish Tori was my mom. I know that kind of sounds weird but i feel a close connection to this women. maybe its because im a redhead who likes to play piano too. or maybe its because she is exactly one year younger than my mother(both born in August)
    i don’t know maybe she was my mom i a past life 🙂

    “The BeeKeeper” is such a beautiful song,? even if it is kind of sad.

  • dragoness17 7 years ago

    I like it, ’cause my? English isn’t the best and is she speaks that slowly, I can understand everything =)

  • She speaks really slow. She? chooses her words very carefully. Not like me. x(

  • dragoness17 7 years ago

    Tori is an incredibly wise woman. Despite being talented, fascinating, controversial, she’s JUST wise. Good to learn something from her words.?

  • dragoness17 7 years ago

    this is my favourite one too. I get goosebumps every time she starts singing ”Do you know who I am…” :)?

  • wbarreguy 7 years ago

    The very end of this interview is touching. Tori has such a sweet and kind heart to her. ? Much love.
