I hear the ancient footsteps like the motion of the sea
Sometimes I turn, there's someone there, other times it's only me.
I am hanging in the balance of a perfect finished plan
Like every sparrow falling, like every grain of sand
--from Every Grain of Sand (Wrecking Ball, Emmylou Harris) I think Dylan wrote it.
I realized tonight that I seldom listen to music these days. My mom can't really hear it...so it seems weird and selfish to do so. And I can't hear her if she needs me if I have music on.
