I've done a lot of celebrating lately, so I was a little surprised when I turned in a pretty low-key entry for the week. I think I sometimes need my music to help me come back down again. Rebecca's law school graduation was a major high. The thrill of seeing my partner finally cross this most impressive threshold is something I will remember forever. The day before that was my birthday, and it was a wonderfully exclusive event. Rebecca and I spent the day at the beach doing absolutely nothing, worrying about absolutely nothing. It was the first time I can remember the two of us putting our worries away so completely since she started her law school journey. It was the best birthday present. I took this song as an opportunity to linger in that day a little longer.


Down by the water
I remember a day a long ago

Savor the feeling
As it climbs its way up from your toes

Say to you now
All my loveliest words
Out in the sunshine

Out in the ocean
The crest of the world is a line

Standing before it
We have bested the foe that is time

Say to you now
All my loveliest words
Out in the sunshine
