Babble On

It’s a big world out there with all kinds of news, and maybe that’s why I turned on the radio in my car instead. With all of that noise surely I can find one thing that sounds good? Yes. I did. On the way to Costco.

I have this weird little system now, since my Dad died. He loved music and so I turn the radio on and ask my late father what he would like to hear. Maybe you have weird little systems, too. Last week I found Foggy Mountain Breakdown by Flatt and Scruggs on the radio – on the first try. Here’s the crazy part – he loved that song. A great day.

I was in my head pretty tight today, mostly because I was nurturing some worries. Do you ever get that way – when you think about something too much? Me too. When that happens and I can’t do something constructive, the best thing for me to do is drive. I hate driving, but I like it when it takes my mind off things. Stop signs and signal lights give me reason to stop thinking and follow orders. When I got into the car, I did my usual thing and asked Dad what to play. With that, I hit the scan button and a song was just starting. It’s a song I have loved forever. It had a new meaning for me today, because I’d like to believe that my father played it.

David Gray – Babylon

That’s all I have today. Thanks for reading.

I love those banjos on Foggy Mountain Breakdown. Dad has good car driving music taste!

For some reason, I had a hankering for Dolly Parton yesterday and downloaded one of her old songs.
