Holy typos and unfiltered writing! This one was supposed to save as a draft and I accidentally published it. Correcting now. There will be two posts today. I was holding on to this one and accidentally put it out, and I have one from this fucking amazing performance I have to tell you about today too… so well.. I’m releasing both. ________________________________________________
Driving home today from a fun night of trivia I heard a song that made me think of someone. Music brings back a person or a moment. Do you do that? I do that all the time. I walked through the door to my apartment and I thought of a song I haven’t heard in a million years. It was my mom’s. Well, technically it was Kenny Rogers’. It’s this song about a woman who just keeps having faith in a man and missing him.. sleeping alone. It’s called “She Believes in Me”. I’ve listened to it a lot when I was missing my mother. She loved Kenny Rogers and played that song and a bunch of Dolly Parton too. She didn’t listen to music very much, my mother, but she loved those two. Listening to “She Believes in Me” tonight I thought about how different I saw that song than Kenny Rogers wrote it.
