A Song, An Embrace and Permission…


The first time I heard this song, I cried.  Hard.  With a heart so heavy I didn’t think I would ever be able to lift it off the ground, I listened.

Curiously, as I tuned in to “Howl” again, and again, and then again, it slowly started to lift me up.  I, in effect, let my heart “howl” with each listen, embracing and subsequently releasing as much pain and sorrow and grief as I could handle during those moments.

In spans of 3 minutes and 53 seconds, I finally give myself permission to mourn the loss of a very important time and a very important relationship in my life.

I still have a long way to go till I feel strong again.

But at least I’m on my way…
