fix you.

an original song by Coldplay, Fix You is one of those songs that will forever remind me of a “moment” in life. i was nearing my 23rd hour of travel home from Kenya when the clouds parted just as the music swells & the bridge begins (3:00-4:00) and i glimpsed “home” thousands of miles below. a bittersweet and beautiful moment…and yes, a few silent tears were streaming.

many, many thanks to my fabulous KD for dropping the second little beauty into my Inbox this past week. Matthew Mayfield’s cover of the song is incredible…beautifully simple & full of honesty.

the original:

& amazing cover:

a fresh shipment of feel-goods will be landing later today…just a little fyi.
