Be Here Now

Dearest sister-

I think of you often. I am sorry that at times I don't have more than a few moments to post something for you so you understand how much I think about you and hope that you are well. My last few posts have been in the form of music because I know this is something you can relate to and often, musicians and lyracists have more of a nack for being able to put into words what I am thinking. I hope you do not mind.

Prior to my last post I heard this song and it was actually the one I had planned to use, but, I didn't want you to come away with that feeling on that particular day. Today I heard this song again as I was working and I thought of you. Perhaps, it is something you need to hear/read today:

Be Here Now, by Ray Lamontagne

Don't let your mind get weary
And confused your will be still, don't try
Don't let your heart get heavy
Child, inside you there's a strength that lies

Don't let your soul get lonely
Child, it's only time, it will go by
Don't look for love in faces, places
It's in you that's where you'll find kindness

Be here now, be here now
Be, be here now, be here now

Don't lose your faith in me
And I will try not to lose faith in you
Don't put your trust in walls
'Cause walls will only crush you when they fall

Be, be here now, be here now
Be, be here now, be here now
