Hey all! Well, it’s been such a big week for me and for news in my world, and I guess people cope in different ways. Much like comfort food, there are certain songs and albums that act as “comfort music”, and take me back to a time or place. My acoustic cover song selection for today is a song by “The Calling” that almost everyone knows (and usually likes). I discovered it and the album (Camino Palmero) in high school, and it was one of the first I listened to when I first got my license. That time of life and love and discovery and loss all seem to give me answers for things that happen modern day. This is a song about believing in something and maybe knowing when to let go, and when to hold on.
Im just troubled by a lot of stuff in the news- new war in Georgia from Russia (without love, apparently)… Bernie Macs death, a kid in my town at my middle school who died in a fight, and the brutal destruction of Jim, Chris, and our friend Alberto in Monopoly this evening (in which I won!) We did our home run derby radio show the other day, and that resulted in a major win for yours truly as well… What do you know! I’m trading in some accumulated good karma, and I will buy myself a lottery ticket tomorrow (and if I win, I’ll be posting from my own mac laptop, instead of Jim’s like today!)
I really love this song and I hope my quick take on it is enjoyable, and reminds you that you only have to answer to one person every night- Your heart. So you better live each day right so you don’t have any ‘splainin to do! (Luuuucy!)
