Hi everyone. Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing. But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are still facing a serious situation but a new year gives us hope for the new days, seasons, opportunities & moments ahead. Still, music is something that will never change for me. It is my refuge, the most comforting part of my life & the one thing I consistently count on. So until a more normal semblance of life returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
In 2005 I heard a new artist who reminded me why I love singer-songwriters as much as I do. The introspective story telling through simple eloquent lyrics combined with the elegance of a less is more acoustic approach gets me every time. And Amos Lee is one of the best ones to come along in the last 20 years. Today’s song is one example of his incredible talent.
“I know we all
All got our faults
We get locked in our vaults
And we stay“.
