We have this amazing music and book collection not too far from our living room – just a few hundred yards down the tree-lined corridor to the west. We don’t mind sharing it with everybody else – it’s a community thing, and that’s the way we like it.

So Nathan and I were there at the library the other day – on his birthday – and he brought home a 2003 Emmylou Harris recording called “Stumble Into Grace.” I first got into her when I bought “Red Dirt Girl” – which became an all-time favorite of mine – eight or ten years ago.

We’ve been listening to it, and I really really like it. That’s the simple truth, and I just had to tell somebody.
