Patty Griffin & EmmyLou Harris

I’ve always loved Patty Griffin’s songwriting, especially her song, Mary.

Jesus said Mother I couldn’t stay another day longer. He flies right by and leaves a kiss upon her face. While the angels are singing his praises in a blaze of glory, Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place.

That image stunned me the first time I heard it. It stunned me a second time, when I heard Patty sing it with Emmylou. Enjoy this clip from Austin City Limits.

Ease Into Monday

I’m not sure what is so arresting about this video, but since my author-friend Dan White posted it on Facebook last week, I can’t stop thinking about it.

If I Be Wrong is gorgeous, the writer’s story painful, the dancer sublime, the strings…..well just watch and enjoy. Happy Monday.
