Wide Open Like A Lake

Day 13 – A picture of your favorite band or artist.

Bring the wind and bring the thunder. Bring the rain till I am tried. When it's over bring me stillness. Let my face reflect the sky. And all the grace and all the wonder of a peace that I can't fake wide open like a lake. 

My mom first brought me her CD some 9 years ago and we popped it in on a roadtrip. The tunes were all so new that it started to grate on me as we tried to visit. Mom was like, "Okay, okay, we don't have to listen to it." Such an interesting start for Sara and I because since then I have bought every album, listened to every interview, read each article, and can often be found shushing my friends or family when a favorite line comes on the tune box, adding "you have to listen to this...she's a genuis!" and offering all the inside, background scoop on the story behind the song. She has a telepathic way of reading the stirrings and longings of my heart and translating them into eloquent and intriguing story-song. She is amazing! I could rave about her and share my borderline obsession for hours. Have I convinced you to give her a listen yet?

For starters, go for these titles (some of my very favorites):
When It Was Over
You Are The Sun
Kingdom Comes
From This One Place
Different Kinds of Happy
Like A Lake
What I Thought I Wanted
I Saw What I Saw

Yes, listen. Please listen. She will change your life. ;)
