A moment of clarity

 One word.
One Line.
One verse, one chorus, one song.
It was one of those rare moments in life where everything fits.  You're driving along randomly surfing through your mp3s when out of nowhere that song comes on.  You know the one I'm talking about.  Yeah, that  one.  It's a song that reaches deep into your chest and grips your soul from the shell of your heart and twists it in such a way you cannot ignore any longer.  You can listen to it a thousand times and each one will be different, unique. The words may be simple or they could be so shrouded in mystery that only you and maybe 3 other ppl on earth get the reference ;)  But whatever they are, they become yours.  

Music touches each of us in very personal ways.  We have songs for almost every event in our lives.  The one that reminds us of pleasant things, and painful times.  There are so many that have touched me in different ways over the years.  I thank my father's memory for raising me to appreciate that music can be more than just a catchy tune.  It can be a warm comfy blanket of memories, good and bad.

I have a song to share with you before I leave.  It may not be your type, but the message has a desperate ring of truth to it if you ask me ;)   Let's just say it hits me pretty hard when I hear it.
