Sometimes there are situations in life that you want to avoid… but not really. What you really want is to be able to move beyond and past the way that situation makes you feel, deep inside. You really want to experience the thing for what is today.. not for what it was yesterday. But.. it sometimes makes you feel and remember yesterday – even though today is completely different. So.. you sometimes avoid it – trying to avoid yesterday .. yet, in the meantime, you’re losing your chances for reshaping it for this day..and tomorrow – all the while apologizing for avoiding it today. I’m grateful for patience.
While I ramble and make absolutley no sense to anyone in this world, but myself – I share with you one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite albums.. and yes, predictably, from one of my favorite artists of the century – – the middle instrumental piece gets me every. single. time:
Tori Amos – Little Earthquakes – Leather
Once, a few years back, Chris read something I had written. His comment to me, at the time, was “You know.. no one gets it. No one understands that except for you. It’s like an inside joke you share with yourself.”
It was a constructive criticism. Yet – sometimes, that’s just the way I prefer it.
