While making an opening night playlist, I came across a song on my computer that I haven't listened to in about a year. And it startled me a little, for I stopped listening to it on purpose back then - a song by Ryan Adams that hit me in the center of my heart.

Although my initial instinct was to protect myself and skip it right away... I chose instead to listen, and to sing the lyrics, holding my shoulders with both hands. And I took those 2 and a 1/2 minutes to let that beautiful, if heart-wrenching, music fill a crease in my soul.
