Dear Tessa

dear Tessa
remember to take the camera
out to your car with you in the morning
so you can take a picture looking back at your
house in the snowy
silver morning light and don't worry about
anything other than that

Tell Me Everything

Is gonna be all right.

Sometimes I have to go out looking for the song that fits how I'm feeling to lift my spirits. I guess once I find it, there's comfort in knowing that someone else felt the same at some point and wrote those words.

Today it was Kenny Loggins' Danny's Song.

My heart feels cold and crippled, so a song about tears of joy really should have made me feel worse, but the right notes and the line "Tell me everything's gonna be all right," even taken out of context, hit the spot. I need someone to tell me everything will be all right occassionally.

Because really, eventually, everything will be.
All right.

I hope.
