Posted in yesterday. today. tomorrow.

the chairman recognizes the vague synopsis committee…

 

 

now playing: eastmountainsouth, “on your way”

 

i may or may not have mentioned this before in this space…my tendencies towards how i communicate when something big is going on. usually, it involves extremes – i’m either overly vocal about what’s on my mind or i say little or nothing at all about it while i process what’s going on.

something big is going on.

and right now, this song that i’ve been listening to on repeat for about half an hour seems to say what’s bouncing about in my head better than i can….


i hope he never hurts you
like i know i hurt you
but i was undecided
and it was all that i could do

but if he says he loves you
like i know i loved you
then there’s a way to trust him
and i’ll get over you

so let his heart surround you
and let his arms protect you
and hold you every morning
the way that i could never do
another life has blessed you
he wants the same as you do
so i must find the courage
to send you on your way

all the nights reflecting in our chance connecting
help me find the meaning in the life i had with you
i wish i’d heard when you said that your heart could not wait
but it was my decision to send you on your way….

i hope he loves you
like i loved you
i hope he knows you like i do
’cause if he loves you like i love you
then i can send you on your way…

i must find the courage
to send you on your way

to send you on your way….

this isn’t a time for pointing fingers, or bashing anyone, or dwelling on the million little things that have brought us to this place.

this feels more like a time for introspection, and giving some thought to where my actual place in this world lies, i think.

and that’s really about all i feel like saying right now.

i know that i’ve been rather silent in this space lately, and there’s certainly the possibility that i’ll be somewhat silent in this space for the short term…i don’t really process this kind of thing normally, i don’t think.

but i gotta do it in my own way….in my own time.
