I’ve been a huge fan of Trevor Hall’s music for about 4 years now.  I’ve listened to all of his albums backwards and forwards and no matter how many times I’ve heard one of his songs, I can hear one and it can touch me in a way that no song has before.  I was listening to him on shuffle yesterday and “Giri’s Song” by him came on and it was different for once–it had a different meaning for me.  

I may be a weak man
But I’ve got a heart of gold
And I will let it shine
Until you come home
I’ve been down low 
I’ve been up high
Drowned in sorrow
I have touched the sky
I will do it all over
I will do it again
What ever it takes to see your face again”

It’s hard to remember all of the good things I’ve done in my life when shit goes wrong.  This song reminded me of an Augusten Burroughs quote that I relate to far too well: “I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.”  Things are bound to happen that will challenge me, push me down, leave me down, and make me feel like there is no hope. But it is in my heart where I can find the courage to defeat these feelings.  I know I have a good heart.  It’s huge, it’s weak, but it’s willing to give love.
