Scattered Leaves written by Jeremy Lindsey and performed by The Be Good Tanyas (one of my favorite bands)!
Each line is a jewel in this crown of a song. Why did I quote “wind and the rain”? It seems to me that I’ve been attracted to the use of weather-related things in literature. I get really excited when I see something that uses rain to convey the idea of moving on. I suppose that seeing these things and “getting it” is like being let in on a secret…understood by a few. Elitist–maybe. But there’s also a sense of humility that comes with it because you know that it’s nothing new. Other people beat you to it. And you idolize them. I suppose it also makes one ask the question, “So what’s next?” How do you build on top of this artistry?
