year eleven

A spot of something good in the world today: the songs we've loved in our eleventh year of marriage. Jack says that this is our slowest playlist yet. Maybe we're getting old. Maybe our lives are moving so fast that we need something to be slow (as Jason Martin sings on track one). Or maybe time running out is a gift, and as another Jason (Isbell) sings, we will treasure each other and we will work hard till the end of our shifts precisely because we know that our days are numbered. That song (track 4) is without a doubt my current favorite of these, but I hope they will all bring a little joy to your week.
