"Can I sail through the changing ocean tides.. Can I handle the seasons of my life?" Ha, well I look at myself, my friends, my family.. and I'm pretty sure that answer sways from a teary 'no', to a shaky 'just', to a (if you've been surrounding yourself with the good ones): 'you bet I absolutely can'!

Some of the most achingly gentle lyrics from one of the most exquisite songs (in my opinion) ever created. All heart, exemplary art. (Landslide, that was, of course). And if you were to peek behind the lyrics to learn of the uncertainty / hardship Stevie Nicks was feeling / facing at the time of writing these (1973) - you'll forever be grateful that she, herself, kept 'sailing' on..

Fleetwood Mac. Or the music thereof. It's almost enough to make you shake your head in disbelief. How do they do it? Sink yourself into this nice and warm, richly scented substance and I'm guessing for most, they could soak in it contently - enchanted - for hours.

From the (arguably) 'I know the quickest most phenomenal way to take you there' guitar work of Gypsy, to the comforting Seven Wonders sideways smile with friends - that instant 30 year rewind to a more innocent time (and maybe the remembering of all that's happened in between), to the 'get me a wine', I'm in Everywhere heaven, to the happiness-inducing Paper Doll. Hours, years - decades of bliss.

I'm not really sure that I buy into the 'reliving your youth' cliche. 'Reliving wonderful emotions' more like it. And that, I think you'd agree, is something to be revered.
