From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 05/07/15:
times there appears to be no light at the tunnel’s end, no dawn to break
the night’s darkness. We feel surrounded by the pain of broken hearts,
the disappointment of shattered dreams, and the despair of vanished
hopes. We join in uttering the biblical plea, “Is there no balm in
We are inclined to view our own personal misfortunes through the
distorted prism of pessimism... We feel abandoned, heartbroken, alone.
If you find yourself in such a situation, I plead with you to turn to
our Heavenly Father in faith. He will lift you and guide you. He will
not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead
you with love through whatever storm you face.”
(b. 21 Aug 1927)
Thanks so much, Susan!

Singer-songwriter. Co-producer. Multi-instrumentalist. Lera Lynn juggles multiple musical roles that finds the Nashville transplant embellishing her Americana roots with a mix of spacey, left-of-center rock and experimental pop-noire. Following the 2014 release of her critically-acclaimed sophomore release, The Avenues, Lynn spent 2015 in a creative whirlwind, kicking off the year with an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman and, months later, wrapping things up with a 39-date headlining fall tour. Along the way, she also played a role in shaping the dark direction of True Detective’s second season, both appearing in the popular HBO series as a barroom singer and contributing a handful of original songs to the show’s soundtrack. The response was overwhelming. True Detective’s teaser trailer, which featured a clip of Lynn’s “The Only Thing Worth Fighting For” (co-written with Rosanne Cash and T Bone Burnett), racked up more than 35 million views in a matter of months, giving Lynn the assurance that a wide audience did, indeed, exist for her brand of otherworldly music.

Your winter coat is made of denim.
You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and mosquito bites.
You're younger than thirty but some of your friends are over 65.
Anything under 70 degrees is chilly.
You've driven through Yeehaw Junction.

Shoes are for business meetings and church, but you HAVE worn flip flops
