Jon and I have been listening to the new Paul Simon album, Seven Psalms when we wake in the night. It’s a dreamy 30 minutes of music and words that loop back to a refrain of Simon finding god in the world around him.
The line “The path I slip and slide on” has stuck with me.
It’s the most simple and complete description of life I can remember hearing. And when I think of it, when I say it in my head like a mantra, it comforts me. It makes me feel like I’m okay, like I’m living my life the best I can.
