It’s  amazing what or who a song can prompt you to think about. I have also found it to be true that an artist  you are pretty sure you can’t stand will often come up with a song that you like.  Enter my relationship with Taylor Swift.I like country music just not hers……. usually. Then I  heard “Ours”, it’s a sappy us against the world type love song and I fell for it. No surprise when you consider I changed zip codes and states as soon as I could to be with my boyfriend.

What did surprise me is that as I was listening  to the song in one tab and perusing Facebookin another I happened to see my friend Sondra’s profile picture and almost cried.For  those of you who may be confused let me explain. Sondra was married to my dad’s best friend Kurby, who passed away suddenly several months ago. Seeing her profile picture changed to a solo shot without Kurby was like skipping a step walking down stairs and  having to catch myself. At that moment I realized the song applied to them too. There is a line in the song, “…. people throw rocks at the the things that shine….”. I hope no one ever threw rocks  at them. They did shine together, brighter than anybody I know
