|What could be more comforting than roses made of butter?|
Sometimes comfort is hard to come by. I've been rolling with some uncomfortable circumstances lately and haven't found anything that would qualify as "comfort food". Except music. There is a thickness that comes with music into a space and occupies it somehow in a similar way to light filling a dark room. Like people, songs are all different inherently. Like people some songs enter a space and immediately put a smile on someone's face. Some songs sparkle. Some songs change when you hear them over time, under different circumstances, through the muffled sound of rain falling on a concrete patio outside a screen door, or in the silent safety of the illusion with which we panel our interior lives. Sometimes. Sometimes you find a song that you can just count on every time. These songs are rare. So are these people.
So. Comfort food and the Theatre of Comfort Dinner Series...
|The South makes many people feel like home!|
