Fitting for my “please let me rest for a year or 5” mood:

Not really my style but some of the lyrics hit:

https://youtu.be/lwgr_IMeEgA

You're broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can't find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
And I'll rise up
High like the waves
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you


When the silence isn't quiet
And it feels like it's getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we'll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
Bring it to its feet
And move mountains
And I'll rise up
I'll rise like the day
I'll rise up
I'll rise unafraid
I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you


All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
And we will rise
We will rise
We'll rise, oh, oh
We'll rise
I'll rise up
Rise like the day
I'll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousand times again
And we'll rise up
High like the waves
We'll rise up
In spite of the ache
We'll rise up
And we'll do it a thousand times again

Upcoming wedding anniversary has me thinking of the inevitable day I will have to deal with legally severing the ties with my vanished former husband and all that comes with that, my having to lay bare my shameful circumstances to a man who will revel in my misfortune, knowing he’ll “get away with everything” and pay absolutely no price for his monstrous mistreatment of me. It’s a thought I generally try to push way into the back of my mind, a can I try to kick as far down the road as I can and hope I never catch up to it.

I had almost forgotten until just now all the shenanigans with him stealing the marriage certificate, where he stole it on one of his last visits to our at the time shared home, denied he had it for almost a year to my then lawyer, refused delivery of certified mail- and then he vanished.
Yeah, totally normal end to a marriage…

Anyway, today this song came up in my background playlist and that’s what brought up the memory and the unwanted reminder of unfinished business…

https://youtu.be/D_-hJrVvY1Q

Soap and water
Take the day from my hand
Scrub the salt from my stinging skin
Slip me loose of this wedding band…

… Soap and water
Wash the year from my life
Straighten all that we trampled and tore
Heal the cut we call husband and wife…

Every so often something reminds me this thread exists.

This was just the exact song I needed a long, long time ago and I love it just as much now:

Elle King- song “Let go”

My favorite verse in the song

I had to pay for all of your bad behavior
But expensive lessons are always the best to know
I'm not waiting for the let go
Don't need any of your say so
I put the pieces back together
So thank you or whatever
Nothing lasts forever, man, I guess so
Waiting for the let go
Waiting for the let go

There is almost something harder about someone being alive and having to lose what you believed to be true of them than someone actually dying.

Indefatigability - determined to do or achieve something; firmness of purpose
perspicacity- a clarity of vision or intellect which provides a deep understanding and insight

Stairway to Heaven- Led Zeppelin (Okay, nothing really to do with this thread, but just a great song)

I don’t know if every location does this, but the common area of our local School of Rock has a sign reading,”NO STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN.” :D

To make an official contribution: Walking Away A Winner by Kathy Mattea

Everything has a beginning and an end. Life is just a cycle of stops and starts. They're ends we don't desire, but they're inevitable and we have to face them. That's what being human is all about.  -Jet Black, Cowboy Bebop

Sometimes things just all seem to fit together. I heard this song for the first time on Friday and then this morning I had to do something that involved driving past my old home, the one my former H conned me into selling as he was secretly getting his ducks in a row, the one that would be paid off now and be providing me the security I worked so hard to provide (notice I’m taking full credit for that because it was never a “we” endeavor, even though I was wholeheartedly building it for “us”.)
I drove by and it looked exactly the same yet unrecognizable at the same exact time. I can’t really explain it. I felt like I was looking at a house I used to have a recurring dream about. 

Anyway, I immediately connected to this song in a “hey, whatever that synthy drum-piano-guitar sound is, it’s exactly how I feel right now” kinda way, and as I drove by the only safe place I ever knew, I weirdly for a brief second wished for a time-warpy miracle where I could send it back as a message to the teenage version of me.

I know what you're gonna be
I know that you're gonna be
You're crumbling up just to see
Afraid that you'll be just like me
