For Today’s Perfect Moment, I have selected a scene from yesterday with which we can all resonate.
I was out in my car, purposefully avoiding news channels and listening to music. A song came on the radio that I hadn’t heard in quite some time. I quickly found myself singing along, and anticipating my favorite lyrics.
It’s funny how some songs become displaced in your internal playlist, while others seem to be in constant rotation. I could use a few more radio surprises. I guess we all could.
For the record, the song was Don McLean’s American Pie. It is a song beloved by my father and through repeated playing has been transferred to me. My favorite lyric is “I met a girl who sang the blues and I asked her for some happy news.”
