Sometimes a song runs across my path and causes me to stop dead in my tracks.  This is that song today.

Glossary "Your Heart to Haunt"

I’ve fallen in love with this band this week, which is no wonder because I’ve been listening to Joey Kneiser for awhile now. I don’t have my usual review for you today, but I think the song speaks for itself.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

XOXO, darlings.

It’s suicide prevention week which seems to mean that everyone is posting pretty, supportive pictures on their Facebook page about how much they care and that no one is alone.  I find this ironic.  And not funny, haha, ironic.  
Those pretty pictures aren’t preventing anything.  They aren’t helping anything.  The only thing that actually helps is reaching out to someone and connecting with them and more than likely, it’s going to have to be in person.
And, yes, we are all alone.  No matter what, everyone is alone.  There’s a quote in P.S. I Love You that pretty much sums it up: “I mean, you’re alone, no matter what.”  ”That’s right…. So now, all alone or not, you gotta walk ahead. Thing to remember is if we’re all alone, then we’re all together in that too.”
So, welcome to the reality of life, darlings.  It’s messy, and sad, and the only way you can help is by digging into the messy and sad parts and proving to someone that you care.  Not just by posting a pretty picture or sending a text.  And the thing is?  Most of the time you won’t even realize there was a need for help in the first place.  So love your friends and family.  Listen to them.  Be there for them.  And appreciate that you are happy.

Instant jealousy. I must get one of these.

Miranda Lambert “There’s a Wall”

Yep, this pretty much sums it up.  I love Miranda Lambert.  She’s such a strong, talented woman and I admire that about her.  

I forgot about Ron Pope and how brilliant he is.  This song is just as perfect today as it was the first time I heard it.  Most of the lyrics just pass right by me on this song, even though they are beautiful, but there’s one line which has always pulled my attention and today was no different.

"Point my headlights towards the interstate, it’s time for my escape."

It might be time to venture from the beautiful city I call home and rest my head somewhere else for a moment.  I’m feeling the need for a bonfire, stars for days and the peace of nature enveloping me in it’s sweet serenity.

It’s been so long since I’ve wandered down a dusty path (well, dusty isn’t an option right now, stupid rain) that I’m not sure I’ll know how to slow down and enjoy it anymore, but I’m certainly willing to try.  I think it’s due time that I get lost in the wilderness.  It’s good for the soul, you know?  

XOXO, cheers my pretty readers!
