Ronin’s Tale: Part 4, The Year of the Dog

“But down here under heaven
There never was a chart
To guide our way across
This crooked highway of the heart
And if it’s only all about
The journey in the end
On that road I’m glad I came to know
My old friend.”

—–Emmylou Harris, “The Road”

Sounds Like Salvation

“I have come to listen for the sound
Of the trucks as they move down
Out on ninety five
And pretend that it’s the ocean
coming down to wash me clean, to wash me clean”

—Emmylou Harris, Boulder to Birmingham
