Avetts in October #5: Swept Away – Two

“There is no beginning to love,” Roger said. “It just creeps over you.” – from Quite a Year For Plums by Bailey White

With your heart my soul is bound

And as we dance I know

that heaven will be found

Well you send my life a whirling

Darling when you’re twirling

             On the floor             

  Swept Away

I am enchanted by the idea of love creeping over a person. I remember when I went off to college, I planned to be a career woman and not even think of marriage until I was at least 25. The following summer I met a boy. When we went out we talked and talked and pretty soon I realized I was turning all the others down (not that there were many, but still…) By the time I was 25 I’d been married for five years and had two children. And 40 years later, we’re not exactly twirling on the floor but we are still talking. And we are both huge fans of The Avett Brothers. Can’t wait for the 25th!
