Muse Food

Thank you Dave Roots, for playing tunes I can listen to all day long. If you like acoustic, you'll love Dave Roots. Old favorites. New ones. With a mixture of every kind of toe-tappin', often deep and always melodic tunes. Check Dave out.

While I agonize my next post (and, yes, it's brewing), here is Blue Rodeo performing one of my favorite songs from the mid-90's, Five Days in May .  Perfect timing. The familiar, haunting strains yanked me back to Seattle, where I stumbled upon them during a brief (and wet) sabbatical from chiropractic school.

Then, as songs and books will do, the punch line slung me back in to today. Perfect. So perfect.

It's okay, Calvin. Coming home is as natural as breathing.**

**Let me clarify. Coming home is as natural as breathing AFTER being sucker punched in the stomach and recovering from the shock. Yeah. Like that. Grateful breathing.
