Today I’m going to do something a little different. This past weekend I had a chance to dig deep into some past mistakes that I had held onto and I had exiled into the dark corners of my mind.

Have you ever been in that situation where a lamp gets bumped “just enough” and you watch it all happen in slow motion? The bump. The waver. The tip to one side. Your feet frozen. Your eyes lock. Your jaw drops. Your hands reach out. Your feet don’t move. The lamp falls in super slow … More Monday Music No.17 – I just froze and watched it fall…
Sorry to leave you on that cliffhanger of a blog title, but the song I wanted to share with you this week fit too perfectly with a blog post I wrote almost 2 years ago.
