“The Path I Slip and Slide On”

a moth on my studio window

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.

  1. Beautiful. I hear his voice singing “slip sliding away” without even realizing it at quiet moments. I don’t know if it’s his voice or the words that feel soothing and encouraging. Probably both.

    1. I’d say both too LoisJean. I find myself singing those words too. I love the connection between that early song this one so much later in life.
