Music is a big part of my life, and some songs popped up a lot around the grief and melancholy of Grace's loss. Roy Kasten played a Vandaveer song on his KDHX show "Feel Like Going Home" the day after the election that I still play over and over some days. An old Coldplay song popped back into my life. I listened a Willie Nelson song I played too a lot after our miscarriage. I would listen to this assortment of songs on flights, rainy walks, or while writing letters to Grace. Some others get added in from time to time, but these are the ones that stuck the most and fit my melancholy the best.
I've been listening to it a lot lately, and am sharing it here. A year ago now, and again this week, the odds are these are the things I was and am listening to.
