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
