Ripple

My Tatus sent me a quote from this song on Saturday night, in between my band practice and playing for the church service. I was feeling low, and he'd read my blog about how I felt about leaving the medical practice, and it was, he said last night, from the Grateful Dead song, "Ripple." He said it's largely thought to be a song about faith. Just at the moment I needed it most.

I'm sending this out to my best male friend, who's also going through some really heavy shit right now. I didn't mean we couldn't be friends because you're drinking. I was trying to employ tough love and tell you, "Come back to me when you're sober." I didn't mean for you to get so hostile and angry towards me. I love you and want you to succeed and be healthy. If I have to fly down there to help you get your act together, I'll do whatever it takes.

Thank you and love you, Tatus!

He truly does love you, you know that, don't you?
