I cried at my desk. It was just a couple of those big fat tears that stubbornly leak out when you’re super frustrated, but I haven’t done that in a very long time. I blame the following: the end of vacation, starting up a new exercise regime, suddenly eating healthy and taking my vitamins, big changes at work, and my normal malaise.
As always... Music saves. Music soothes. Music gives me perspective and balance. This week, music has been especially important to me. The following songs in particular.
The Head and The Heart - Down in the Valley
This song feels familiar and homey to me. His voice sounds like an old friend and it makes me nostalgic. Once I listen to the song, I repeat it about 50 times because I just can’t bear to stop listening.
Just about every station that I listen to on Sirius has been playing this song lately. During lunch, I listened to it on Alt Nation and then flipped over to Spectrum and listened again without any complaints. There is something mysterious yet emotionally close about this song. It sucks me in. However, the video is annoyingly pretentious... just close your eyes and listen.
Ryan Adams - Lucky Now
