It’s been difficult to think of what to post here lately. As you can tell, I’ve been wading deep into music lately trying to float through this tidal wave I’ve been on. I feel a bit like a grape that’s been in the sun too long and getting squeezed into wine.
Only three weeks or so since Jer died. We’ve lost a couple others since him, but haven’t truly found my center again since Jer passed. It’s been good to be in contact with Leanna and the kids so much. We’re planning a trip together (one that Jer and I had begun to plan a few days before his death) that we will all take together in the fall.
School has been going good. Still don’t feel like I’m “in the groove” right now, but it’s a needed distraction if nothing else. I’m beginning to feel like a bit of an anchor on my cohort friends as almost each post in my spiritual formation class goes back to loss and pain. My therapist has been great, but there’s still no answers to be found, nor do I believe there will ever be. So, I am finding solace in my family, friends and in music again…which has always been a place where I can find a soothing peace. So, thanks to the artists that have given me peace. Thanks to Dave Matthews and band, thanks to Derek Webb, Jackson Browne, Bob Marley and Metallica. Thanks to Eva Cassidy, Indigo Girls, U2 and REM. Thanks to Dave Crowder, Ray LaMontaine and John Mayer. Thanks to Steven Curtis, Iz and Boston….
