Off-Topic: Music & Time

Forgive this rambling. It's not about running.

My Facebook feed reminded me that Bon Iver's "For Emma" came out 10 years ago. TEN. 

For some reason, that made me profoundly sad. One mixed tape leads to another. One sad song sends me into a nostalgic tailspin. And I can picture it all like it was yesterday. 

For Emma came at the exact right moment. It captured how I felt and now, its forever a time capsule to take me back.

There's no point to this other than acknowledge how strange time is - how powerful music is. Ten years was a blink of an eye. And its funny how things don't always end up the way you think they might. 

there's a pull to the flow
my feet melt the snow
for the irony i'd rather know
