The antidote for a rough day or week is a lullaby by James Taylor. Last night, we let James sing us to sleep with his signature “Sweet Baby James”. I think I like the idea so much, I’m going to move it to late Friday nights and do it weekly – a different Taylor copyright violation 😉 to help us wash away the cares of the week. When I’ve run out of Taylor tunes, we’ll find another artist for our weekly lullaby. For now, enjoy Secret O’ Life, the mellow exploration of metaphysics and deep philosophy, made into sweet poetry.
“Any fool can do it, there ain’t nothin’ to it.”
“It’s OK to feel afraid, but don’t let it stand in your way”
Although this song could have easily slipped into nihilism (it is existential at its core), instead, Taylor turns it into “a lovely ride”. And that’s just what we need at the end of a hard week.
Goodnight, my friends.
