Avetts in October #4: Swept Away – One

In anticipation of The Avett Brothers concert on October 25th, I am attempting a series of blog posts connecting some of their lyrics to words of some of my favorite authors.

I didn’t discover Eudora Welty until  around 2015. There is a lot that can be learned from her writing, especially One Writer’s Beginnings.  She talks about how we change as we move through life, bumping up against others.

“Each of us is moving, changing, with respect to others.  As we discover, we remember, remembering, we discover and most intensely do we experience this when our separate journeys converge.”

Sometimes it’s life that changes around us and the special people in our lives help us to stay grounded. I hear this in Swept Away.

 

Life is ever changing but I will always

find a constant and comfort in your love
