This song has saved my life a few times.
It's beautiful. The words are beautiful. The ideas are comforting, the music is haunting and her voice brings me to tears.
I had the fortune to see Sarah Slean perform live in Vancouver last November and I still find myself re-living the experience. Slean's voice is clear, strong, quirky and it comes straight out of her heart.
Land and Sea, the album this song is featured on, has been my constant companion over the last few weeks (OK, months) while life has been so crazy. It creates a
moment of peace and beauty in my earphones
Ha! I just realized how glamorous that makes my life sound. It's not, but it would please me to think you thought so. ;)
Anyway as I have been wrestling with the challenge of returning to regular blogging (ironic how when I have stuff to write about I have no time to write about it and when my life if boring I have no inclination to write) and looking for the right words, this song keeps coming back to me. I was prevented from singing it at a recent talent show by laryngitis, so I thought I'd share it with you all now. I hope you gain as much comfort and hope from this simple song as I do.
