This song popped up tonight after a day , a week , 3 weeks of unexpected challenge and change. Twice I have heard, with men I have loved, Carlos play this live. Once, I sat on the edge of the stage just feet from this guitar intensely playing to my heart. The second time I stood at the front of the stage with the man who became my husband. This song helped me through my labor with my first child. Tonight, this song & this beautiful guitar again touch my soul and connect me with my spirit, lifting me beyond momentary trials. (Literally, as today marked the end of a three day criminal trial for which I was a juror and, despite much intense and thoughtful deliberation, ended in a deadlock/mistrial) The power of music in my life has been profound and I am forever grateful to the musicians and writers who have provided it.
A place to decant my brain, to capture inspiration and share fresh insights. [Posts from 2015 onward]
