Saint of the Day: St. Damien de Veuster

On repeat today: Son Little

son little things i forgot

A lovely lady (hi, lovely lady!) sent me an Amazon gift card, so I did something I haven’t done in maybe ten years: bought a new album. It’s on repeat now, all five songs of it, and that’s why I’m not getting anything done today.

The album is Son Little: Things I Forgot. Here is “Your Love Will Blow Me Away When My Heart Aches.”

This guy is the real deal. Haven’t heard anything this good in years and years. My only concern is that I don’t think he is okay. I want to stop by his house with some hot soup and make sure he is getting to bed at a reasonable hour.  He has one of those “quivering with life while staring at death” voices, but it’s the silences between lines that really hurt.

He also won my heart by posting a picture on Facebook of a check for ten cents that he recently earned through his art.

Can’t wait for more songs!
