Healing Voices ...
Yeah. I know. All I do is go to the same place, over and over.
Today's reason was to spend some time with the delightful Lisa B. We both wanted to get together before I left, and this was literally the only day that would be possible, so after a rough night of sleep, and playing car tomfoolery with E, I found myself yet again on the boardwalk at Avon in the middle of the afternoon.
Lisa and I met up in Asbury Park a little after five. She was in a bit of a dark space, which I suppose mirrored my own from when we talked on the phone the other day. We both had a feeling that the music we make together would prove quite healing, so we sat down, just guitar, drum and voice, and began.
She started strumming the chords to Let It Be, which we'd never played before. Her voice, always a soothing instrument to me, had a little something extra today. We played through a couple more new pieces, Jesus on the Mainline and Modern English's I Melt With You, which was awesome. So much potential in this partnership.
There is much we'd like to do when I get back, but that feels like a long time from now. When we finished for today, after walking down to the water so she could let Oreo run around, there were hugs, and there were invitations to see where this sound we make will lead us. I imagine, as always, the destination will be unexpected.
While all this was going on, E got sick, so rather than lingering with my book, I made my way towards home. Arriving home around 930 to a house that once again had internet, we resumed the quest to finish season one of Glee before I leave, watching three episodes (17 - 19) which had us smiling and crying and loving all over again.
And now it's late. And now to bed.
