Never Know, #901


Yesterday, I ran into someone who’s been through a recent horrible tragedy.  As I expressed to them how sorry I am for their loss, there were tears and such sorrow coming from the family.  I felt absolutely sick for them, and somehow, I just couldn’t find the perfect words.  Maybe because there are no perfect words for moments like those.

It’s weird for me to be at a loss for words.  This is what I do, after all.  I write.  I manipulate words and twist them around to be exactly what I want them to be.  On the fly though, it’s different.  At least when you write, you can edit yourself as much or as little as you’d like.

Spending a moment with a family who needs words to soothe them completely though me for a loop.  I wish so much that I could have had some magic at that moment…something that would have put that moment in perspective.  I guess the only thing I can hope for is that the family knows just how much I care.  Perhaps a loss of words shows just that.  I have to hope.

My song of the day is Jack Johnson’s “Never Know,” a song that expresses not knowing what will come next.  Click HERE to hear it, because that’s how I felt yesterday.  We never know what will tomorrow will bring no matter how much we care.

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
