I think I’ve shared my passionate adoration of Neil Young with you before. This is a particular favorite.

When I left Huntsville I had to leave behind the woman I would consider my soulmate (if I believed in such things). Her health isn’t great and getting to Atlanta from Huntsville is damned near impossible. I never expected her to come over after Kell was born.
