“ You must be able
To do three things:
To love what is mortal;
To hold it
Against your bones knowing
Your own life depends on it;
And, when the time comes to let it go,
To let it go
Mary Oliver, In Blackwater Woods
Objectively, I know this is ridiculous.

Personally, I love it so much.

Richard Buckner played DC this weekend and listening to him was as good of a birthday present as there ever was. It was a small crowd in a small dive bar which was a perfect place. He was great. That’s not much of a review. I don’t know how to write about music, especially this music, which has played in the background of so many parts of my life. This isn’t the music I play when friends are over for wood splitting but what Ive chosen when I’m alone, when I’m running away and choosing to stay, it’s leaving Asheville and moving north, it’s leaving my family and moving forward, and so many uncountable unremarkable quiet moments in between. Its solitude and i felt naked and vulnerable listening to it in the dark next to a handful of strangers. I left before he finished (something about a babysitter and a day job and a school night and kids). I left before he played this song, one of my favorite songs and finding this posted today was like my birthday all over.

I bought the best house in the best neighborhood with the highest ranked public schools that I could afford and everything was going so right until I realized that living in one of the wealthiest counties in one if the wealthiest states makes Appalachian poor the polar opposite of cool.
