this song popped into my life recently after a tangential search precipitated by the what are you listening to? thread and it was a little too touching to me. i didn’t at that point understand why but i sensed it’s importance. i played it for her and she had no clear response.
in the same time (current events), unbeknownst to me, my partner has been in therapy beginning to comes to terms personally with an addiction she’s been living with for 20 years without ever telling a soul. two nights ago she began sharing openly and honestly with me about her struggle.
and so music touches me more deeply than it would have otherwise and in hindsight i shudder to think of how apropos the tunes entrance into my life has been. a through-the-beyond kind of moment that goes past idiosyncrasy in my faith based life experience/understanding.
things happen, not in a vacuum, but with interrelation. and when something reaches into you with more poignancy it is likely connected to some process, grief, joy or otherwise. and it is best if you can pay attention to the signs and stay present for what is to come.
my day is mixed with tears, honesty, joy, sadness, awareness of betrayal, forgiveness, love and hope.
my hope is that if others have those moments and care to share/process, here could be a safe place to do so. i love lines and i feel support, thoughtfulness and meaning beyond any other place ever found on the internet. and i thank you for being a part and i thank the makers.
