take a look at me now



The Postal Service - "Against All Odds" (cover of the Phil Collins song)

I am not sure what brought it on, but I have been missing my Dad a lot this week. I can't believe that this October will mark 4 years since my Dad died, since it all still feels so fresh at times.

When my Dad died I spent hours pouring over the same CDs. When nothing that my friends said or did made me feel better, I somehow felt comforted by Ray Lamontagne, The Weepies, and this Postal Service cover which I played about a thousand times that first week. This song came on my iPod shuffle today while I was driving and tears came into my eyes--funny how songs can carry such an imprint.

The Postal Service does that to me quite a bit too! I can't believe it's been four years. Happy thoughts your way. I miss you!
