Notes: I don't mean to be cryptic and mysterious or anything, but my life has become uncharacteristically complicated recently. I anticipated some of it, and some of it is just kind of happening at its own speed. I don't want to spill all of my beans yet because there are some projects and priorities that I just don't want to jinx, but one good example is that suddenly we're buying a house. A couple of weeks ago it was out there on the horizon, and now out of nowhere we find ourselves smack in the middle of it. It's kind of a big pain in the ass by the way, but I think most people understand that.

Frankly, that one thing would have been enough, but life doesn't always let you do one thing at a time, does it? I find myself trying to play down the breadth of my current priorities. It's a defense mechanism so I don't lose my marbles. But one thing impacts another and everything kind of rolls around in a big soup inside me. I'm sorting myself out, but I'm a puzzle in knot. I need to honor that and ask my people to be with me through it. I don't have to pretend that everything is normal right now when it isn't.


Say a prayer for me
Don't tell me how it goes
Not sure what I believe
But I trust you goodness knows

Wake up I heard the sound
The engine come alive
I need you all around
To live more than survive

I say easy come and easy go
It's no big deal at all
I mean playing it off is what I know
I don't mean it at all

Make sense of this
A puzzle in a knot
One second's an abyss
A detail I forgot

I say easy come and easy go
It's no big deal at all
I mean playing it off is what I know
I don't mean it at all
