Sometimes songs of grief are so fully human that they are, in their own way, joyful.
The pain can be intense, but these songs also celebrate that we have the capacity, the gift, of feeling loss as fully we do.
That’s how this beautiful, mournful song by Stephen Foster makes me feel. Sung by the wonderful McGarrigles.
Beautiful. Thanks for posting this. You have a very interesting blog. I’ll read you again.
