When I pondered the answer to today's question, "What essay, poem or short story do you return to again and again?" this is what kept showing up:
It's actually the words to a song. I've told you before that living in Portland for a year was the year that I unraveled. These lyrics carried me there, as I drove across the country alone. They delivered me to the place I desperately needed to find: the me that I'd been hiding for much too long.
Ten years later, I'm back home, full circle, living a different life. And the words stay with me. When I'm driving around town, I slide the disc into the player and remember that every day is a new opportunity to step out on faith and show my face.
Freedom is mine today.
