Moving me to tears. I do hope there there will be something happier to follow. Christmas always feels like this for me.

Sad, of course. But also very beautiful.

Such longing, in both the voice and piano, and despite the sorrow in the words, the uplift in the music is unmistakable. Perhaps the warmth underlying the sorrow in this will give hope to those who hear this who are going through what it describes.

Thanks for your very kind review Admiral. Despite the pain, there is hope. Strange how love and pain are intertwined, and that faith is somehow in-between.

No..Your not alone with these feelings. You can always tell when something is from the heart and when its real. When you lay it out in black and white for all to see with the emotion that I just heard, That takes guts! I had to fight back the tears while listening and I lost. This is sad but oh so beautiful Emily…Thanks for sharing this.

I’d come over with some chocolate and a spare shoulder, but San Diego’s a very long walk. This is reminiscent of Joni Mitchell’s “River”, in being a honest expression of how the holidays can sharpen the pain of loss.

I would definitely take the chocolat and spare shoulder if you could beam yourself here! Thanks for the Joni comparison — I’m honored :)

Thanks for your Grief, Loss, Compassion of Love, People and the Earth, A great movement of evolutionary logic in a rational manner is needed for the future as our biggest threat make become the whole of humankind as our resources become more scarce. We are driven by Competetion and Beliefs possibly leading to further damaging consequences. I read one theory where they say compassionate people suffer from depression would that say the normal people are not compassionate? or greedy? are we looking at Evolution?.. go figure - may we live/pass in peace. Thanks

Heartfelt and deeply personal writing, perfect for the reflective mood of this time of year.
