In anticipation of The Avett Brothers concert on October 25th, I am writing a series of blog posts connecting some of their lyrics to words of some of my favorite authors.
“Until I can mourn the loss of a dream I cannot be comforted enough to have vision for a fresh one.” from The Irrational Season (1977) by Madeleine L’Engle
There have been so many times over the years that things just didn’t turn out like I thought they would. But I’m a better woman for having gone through it.
I remember crying over you,
and I don’t mean like a couple of tears and I’m blue.
I’m talking about collapsing and screaming at the moon,
but I’m a better man for having gone through it.
Yes, I’m a better man for having gone through.
