Like I said

December 16, 2011

The Irish have a saying: “Life will break your heart.”

Etta James knows how to do it with one song. I kept listening to it over and over while eating my supper and then washing the dishes and sweeping the floor like countless women, men and children throughout time and across the universe have done at the end of the day and it made me happy that someone was generous enough to live through the worst heartbreak, wring herself out and write this song that could make the whole world stop cleaning the kitchen, put their heads down on the table and weep.

Yes, life will break your heart. But who knew you could like it?
